The work presented here has been aimed at exploring a polymer nanoparticle based approach to cancer diagnostics and therapy. Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the world. Nanoparticles and polymer science have opened up a new world of opportunities for the development of efficient medical diagnostic methods and of selective cancer therapy. The different (sometimes hierarchical and/or multilayer) structures, shapes and compositions of nanoparticles provide good potential for their application in the biomedical field. With the development of nanotechnology, various types of uncoated and coated nanoparticles are being developed for cancer diagnostics and therapy.
