Nanotechnology: Revolutionizing the Science of Drug Delivery

Mohini Mishra et al. Curr Pharm Des. .

Abstract

Growing interest in the field of nanotechnology has led to its emergence in the field of medicine too. Nanomedicines encompass the various medical tools, diagnostic agents and the drug delivery vehicles being evolved with the advancements in the aura of nanotechnology. This review emphasizes on providing a cursory literature on the past events that led to the procession of nanomedicines, various novel drug delivery systems describing their structural features along with the pros and cons associated with them and the nanodrugs that made a move to the clinical practice. It also focuses on the need of the novel drug delivery systems and the challenges faced by the conventional drug delivery systems.

Keywords: Aquasomes; bilosomes; dendrimers; inorganic nanoparticles; liposomes; micelles; nanomedicine..
