Cancer metastasis remains the major cause of global cancer deaths. Radiation therapy remains one of the golden standards for cancer treatment. Nanomedicine based strategies have been designed and developed in order to improve the clinical outcomes of cancer therapy and diagnosis at molecular levels. Over the years, several researchers have shown their interest in using radiosensitizers made of high Z elements. Metal-based nanosystems also play a dual role by enhancing the synergistic effect of cell killing via various biological immune responses. This review summarizes the role of Nano-sensitizers in boosting radiation (ionizing/non-ionizing radiations) induced biological responses in treatment of metastatic cancer models.
