Silica nanoparticles offer a promising platform for the delivery of drugs, in particular for the drugs which lack water solubility, target capability and have non-specific distribution, systematic toxicity and low therapeutic index. In this review, we focus on the synthesis and therapeutic (particularly, anti-cancer) applications of Curcumin loaded Silica Nanoparticles. Various surface modifications of silica nanoparticles have been discussed that are used to enhance their therapeutic applications. The characterization techniques and study of their biocompatibility have also been presented.
