Development of Stimuli-Responsive Polysaccharides-based Nanotheranostics
The intrinsic structure and characteristics of polysaccharides make them suitable for forming stimuli-responsive nanosystems. Recently, a variety of polysaccharides have been applied to develop the sensitive nanomaterials for therapy, diagnosis and their combination. The mini-review intends to present the stimuli-responsive polysaccharides-based nanotheranostics through elucidating the typical examples of designing, preparing and applying the intelligent polysaccharides-based nanosystems published during the last five years. The relationship between the structure of polysaccharides and the function of the obtained nanosystems is discussed as well.
