Nanotechnology is an advancing field of biomedical science especially in drug delivery system. Nanoceria a part of nanotechnology will appear as an innovative drug delivery carrier in various therapies. The unique ability of nanoceria to switch its oxidation state between +3 and +4 makes it a potent therapeutic option for many diseases associated with oxidative stress, inflammation and also a potent drug delivery agent.Description: In this review article, we focus the main drug delivery mechanisms (autoregeneration and radical scavenger) of nanoceria and its synthesis, characterization, toxicity; application with respect to reactive oxygen species (ROS) mediated disorders.
Nanoceria, cerium oxide nanoparticle (CNP), cytoprotective, reactive oxygen species (ROS), oxidative stress, novel carrier.
