Magnetic nanoparticles are nanomaterials that are magnetically influenced by an external gradient. The engineering and manipulation of matter at the molecular level presents several advantages in the field of nanomedicine since most biological molecules exist and function at the nanoscale. Magnetic nanoparticles are promising methods for targeted drug delivery that allow for spatially, temporally and dosage-tunable drug release with minimal side effects. The most commonly used magnetic nanoparticles are Magnetite (Fe3O4) and Maghemite (Fe2O3). The function of drug carriers, or "Drugs delivery" is to take the drug to the pharmacological target, reducing the side effects observed in the drugs, also reducing the amount of drug administered, thus obtaining the pharmacological treatment in an optimized way. This study aims to analyze the use of drug-loading magnetic nanoparticles in cancer treatments.
