Orthopedic medicine faces significant challenges in treating bone-related diseases such as osteosarcoma, managing bone defects, and combating bacterial infections. This study examines the use of nanoparticle-based therapies, which show promise in enhancing on-site delivery, bioavailability, release kinetics, and efficacy of treatments in bone tissue engineering.
The safe deposit of actinide elements are important to ensure public safety and advancing nuclear energy development, and zircon (MSiO4) has been regarded as a promising candidate to immobilize large actinides due to its low solubility, high compatibility, and excellent radiation resistance.
