Abstract

DNA nanotechnology utilizes synthetic DNA strands as the building material to construct nanoscale devices, and the field has developed rapidly over the past decade. Recently, the use of DNA nanostructures for various applications, particularly biomedical ones, has drawn great interest. This review focuses on the most recent research directed at utilizing functionalized DNA devices for nanomedical applications and presents representative research progress in disease diagnosis, treatment and prevention. In addition, the safety and future clinical applications of DNA nanostructures are discussed.
