Opinion

The consolidation of nanomedicine
Published Online: Jun 26 2019
DOI: 10.1002/wnan.1569
Despite being a broad field at the frontier of the life sciences, innovation in nanomedicine seems to have rather consolidated than expanded. Uncertainties in safety, regulatory and ethical requirements may have led innovators to engage in nanomedicine that relies on past innovation, eventually at the expense of fostering advances in novel fields.

Advances of nanotechnology in osteochondral regeneration
Published Online: Jul 22 2019
DOI: 10.1002/wnan.1576
Nanoparticle‐based strategies enhance therapeutic outcome. Nanoparticles can be divided into degradable and nondegradable nanoparticles. The degradable nanoparticles include chondroitin sulfate, collagen, PLGA, PLA, polycaprolactone, and HA, while the nondegradable nanoparticles consist of mesoporous silicon dioxide, gold nanoparticles, quantum dots, SPIOs, and lipids. Drugs, growth factors, and genetic material‐loaded nanoparticles can promote the regeneration of osteochondral tissue at sites of pathology and fracture.
