A system of tunable theranostic Fe3O4@mesoporous silica nanospheres for diagnosis and gene therapy has been designed by Shu-Hong Yu and co-workers on page 327. Tunable delivery of imaging probe and gene can be realized by the tunable magnetic cores and modification of surface charges. These silica nanospheres may act as a theranostic nanosystem due to good biocompatibility, effective MRI diagnosis and gene delivery capabilities.
