This research article presents the biological and morphological changes observed in osteocytic and cancer cells after being exposed to various nanomaterials. It has been proved that in a very short time the cells did uptake all the nanomaterials, process which was found to induce changes in the death rates, shapes and sizes of the cells. Moreover, when the nanomaterials were delivered along with chemotherapeutic agents, the cellular death rate increased drastically as compared to the case when the nanomaterials were delivered alone.
