Gas nanomedicine: An emerging cutting-edge field

Several therapeutic gases are quite helpful for treatment of many inflammation-related diseases including cancer, but also exhibit some shortcomings such as limited therapy efficacy. Gas nanomedicine appears as an emerging cutting edge of nanomaterials and gas medicine, raising urgent demand on nanomaterials to address the issues of gas medicine. Scientists based in China propose a series of strategies of engineering advanced gas-releasing nanomedicines, and envisage current trends and future directions of gas-releasing nanomedicines for anticancer.
