RES-based clearance of systemic administered AuNPs depends on their size. Large AuNPs accumulate in the liver, while smaller AuNPs are likely to end up in the spleen or be excreted in the urine via glomerular filtration. The AuNPs that escape the TRMs could accumulate in the diseased tissues. Reproduced with permission [114]. Copyright 2019, Frontiers in Bioengineering and Biotechnology
