Recently, drug delivery systems based on nanotechnology have received great attention in cancer therapeutics and diagnostics since they can not only improve the treatment efficacy but also reduce the side effects. Among them, mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs) with large surface area, high pore volume, tunable pore size, abundant surface chemistry, and acceptable biocompatibility exhibit unique advantages and are considered as promising candidates for cancer diagnosis and therapy. In this review, we update the recent progress on MSN-based systems for cancer treatment purposes. We also discuss the drug loading mechanism of MSNs, stimuli-responsive drug release, and surface modification strategies for improving biocompatibility, and targeting functionalities.
