In the last 25 years a new class of nanostructured materials has overwhelmingly made its way into the biomedical field. Polyhedral Oligomeric Silsesquioxanes (POSS)s which, thanks to their hybrid nature (organic-inorganic), are materials with both high mechanical strength and biocompatibility. These characteristics, and others, make them ideal candidates for the most varied applications in medicine. This short review traces the aspects of the main recent applications.
