CAVALCANTI, Iago Dillion Lima et al. Nanoparticles in the use of natural products for the treatment of lung cancer. Ars Pharm [online]. 2019, vol.60, n.3, pp.185-192.  Epub Mar 09, 2020. ISSN 2340-9894.


Carry out a bibliographical survey about the use of nanoparticles in the delivery of natural products for the treatment of lung cancer.


A bibliographic review was made using the descriptors “Nanoparticles”, “Biological Products” and “Lung Neoplasms”, through the databases ScienceDirect, PubMed and SciELO, in the period from 2009 to 2018.


After analyzing the articles according to the inclusion criteria, we obtained 31 articles, of which 25.81% refer to natural products in the treatment of lung cancer, 29.03% to nanoparticles in the treatment of lung cancer and 45.16 % to nanoparticles as carriers of natural products for the treatment of lung cancer.


The use of nanoparticles allows the delivery of natural products, increasing their therapeutic properties against lung cancer cells, and decreasing the side effects of these highly toxic agents.

Keywords : Nanoparticles; Biological Products; Lung Neoplasms.
