Background: Porous micro- and nanoparticles have the capacity to encapsulate a large quantity of therapeutics, making them promising delivery vehicles for a variety of applications. This review aims to highlight the latest development of inorganic and hybrid (inorganic/ organic) particles for drug delivery with an additional emphasis on combatting drug resistant cancer. We go one step further and discuss delivery applications beyond medicinal delivery, as there is generally a translation from medicinal delivery to botanic delivery after a short lag time. Methods: We undertook a search of relevant peer-reviewed publications. The quality of the relevant papers was appraised using standard tool..
