Abstract

Nanoscience provides several modalities to combat cancer disease effectively. Magnetic hyperthermia and photothermal therapy techniques are central research themes among various groups in the world by utilizing magnetic and optical characteristics of distinct or composite nanoentities. This review provides the current research on both the techniques and their successes towards clinical translation. This review discusses about the various heating mechanisms involved in magnetic and photo-induced hyperthermia. We have evaluated potential functional nanoparticles with excellent properties capable of providing innovative future solutions to current problems associated with these therapies. Several factors (extracellular and intracellular) have been covered and explained which may affect such thermal treatments. We have provided some instrumental and technical details of both the techniques that are important for consideration in using these modalities of treatments. A direct comparison of these two techniques and a further need of the combined therapy (magnetic hyperthermia plus photothermal therapy) was highlighted as a new pathway for cancer treatments.
