The Sandvig group has recently published a review article in "Nanomedicine" (journal impact factor 5,98) about the in vivo use of nanoparticles. The main focus is on metal-based nanoparticles for in vivo imaging and requirements for bringing such particles from in vitro studies and imaging in animals into common clinical use. Much of the discussion is also relevant for other type of nanoparticles and for their therapeutic use.
