Abstract

Nanomaterials offer unique advantages as drug-delivery vehicles for cancer therapeutics. For immuno-oncology applications, cancer nanomedicine should be developed beyond drug-delivery platforms. A greater emphasis on actively modulating host anticancer immunity using nanomaterials provides new avenues for developing novel cancer therapeutics.
