Abstract

Liquid metals in recent years have grabbed the attention of researchers due to their expanded applicability not only in the field of therapeutics but also in theranostic. Acknowledged as a nuclear medicine due to its radioactivity, Gallium finds its widespread application in disorders of bone, calcium metabolism, and cancer. The present article deals with the advancement of gallium based nanoplatforms for therapy, imaging, and biosensing of cancers. The article describes the gallium based nanoconjugates and furnishes one's understanding of various therapeutic approaches such as photothermal therapy, sonodynamic therapy, radiotherapy, and immunotherapy along with various imaging platforms and biosensing platforms. A brief section related to patents on gallium based nanoplatforms in cancer has been included along with various molecular docking and simulation studies done on gallium. The recent advancement with respect to drug delivery gives an insight into the future perspective of gallium based nanoplatforms in the field of cancer theranostic.
