Particulate materials are becoming increasingly used in the literature for medical applications, but translation to the clinical setting has remained challenging as many particle systems face challenges from in vivo barriers. Multicompartmental particles that can incorporate several materials in an individual particle may allow for more intricate control and addressing of issues that otherwise standard particles are unable to. Here, some of the advances made in the use of multicompartmental particles for medical applications are briefly described.
