Nanogels as Drug Carrier in Cancer Treatment: A Bibliometric Overview of the Publication in Web of Science in year 2004-2021
Keywords:Nanogels, Drug carrier, Cancer treatment, Bibliometric analysis
This is a bibliometric analysis study of nanogels in cancer treatment by studying the documents related to nanogels field. As cancer has been reported to have high amounts of cases, an efficient treatment is essential for all the tumour patients. Nanogels has the ability to transport the anticancer drug to the targeted site on the tumour microenvironment. A lot of studies have been done regarding the nanogels and nanotechnology which started to attract people in 1980s where United State initiated the lead in 2000. An analysis has been done in this paper by extracting data from WOS database and visualize through VOSviewer to study the collaboration network, topic of interest and impact of publications. Findings reveal that the collaboration work is strong between United State and China as both countries are successful in scientific knowledge technology. This study is expected to have an impact for future nanogel study in cancer treatment.
