Cerium-based materials have established themselves as biologically active materials with a wide range of pharmacological benefits. In particular, Nanoceria has been proven to be the most versatile and effective therapeutic agent due to its surface area-to-volume ratio. In this chapter, we made an attempt to discuss all important therapeutic applications of Cerium based materials. Also, the mechanistic course of action of cerium-based materials has been emphasized in this chapter. Moreover, the possible toxicity of cerium-based materials in the biological system has been reviewed in the later section of this chapter. 

Keywords: Antiseptic, Anti-inflammatory, Cerium, Nanoceria, Pharmacology.
