Abstract

This paper delves into the utilization of gold nanoparticles (Au-NPs) in nanomedicine, examining both their advantageous properties and associated drawbacks. Au-NPs have gained significant attention in biomedical applications owing to their unique physicochemical characteristics, such as biocompatibility, tunable optical properties, and facile surface functionalization. These attributes render Au-NPs promising candidates for various therapeutic and diagnostic purposes in nanomedicine. However, their implementation also presents challenges, including concerns regarding toxicity, stability, and scalability. This review offers a critical assessment of the advantages and disadvantages of employing Au-NPs in nanomedicine, aiming to provide insights for researchers and clinicians navigating the complexities of nanoparticle-based therapies.
