ABSTRACT
Oral squamous cell carcinoma is the 6th most common cancer for both sexes worldwide. The high mortality rate in cancer such as oral squamous cell carcinoma is commonly attributed to the difficulties in detecting the disease at an early and treatable stage. Possessing unprecedented potential for early detection, accurate diagnosis, and personalized treatment of oral cancer, nanoparticles have been extensively studied over the last decade. This review, will summarize the current state-of-the-art of gold nano particles in biomedical applications targeting oral cancer. Gold nanospheres, nanorods, nanoshells, nanocages, and surface enhanced Raman scattering nanoparticles will be discussed regarding their uses in early detection and treatment of oral cancer.
