Translating Nanoparticles in Hyperthermia for Applications in Cancer, Wound Healing, and Treatment Planning

The aim of this article collection is to describe advances in engineering nanoparticles for thermal therapy applications. The collection will present specific focus areas where nanoparticles are making a profound impact in clinical and translational applications of hyperthermia. The field of nanoparticle engineering is constantly evolving with diverse nanoparticles under consideration in thermal therapies, ranging from magnetic, to metals, to polymers, and liposomes. This article collection will highlight each of these sub-types of nanoparticles for heat-generation, to help familiarize readers with the breadth of opportunities.

A major focus of this collection will be the application of these nanoparticles in hyperthermic oncology, including the combination of nanoparticle-based heat-generation with complementary therapies such as radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or immunotherapy. Additionally, the collection will describe the use of thermal nanoparticles in wound healing applications, an emerging area of interest. Finally, vast amounts of predictive information can be learned from treatment planning based on state-of-the-art computational modeling, which is the third focus of this article collection.

We hope that readers of this article collection on nanoparticles for hyperthermia will relish the advances made and marvel at their progress toward clinical translation. Any article types consistent with the International Journal of Hyperthermia's author guidelines are welcomed.
