Nano Technology Based Drug Delivery System
Nanoparticles hold tremendous potential as an effective drug delivery system. In this review we discuss recent developments in nanotechnology for drug delivery. To overcome the problems of gene and drug delivery, nanotechnology has gained interest in recent years. Nanosystems with different compositions and biological properties have been extensively investigated for drug and gene delivery applications.
To achieve efficient drug delivery it is important to understand the interactions of nanomaterials with the biological environment, targeting cell-surface receptors, drug release, multiple drug administration, stability of therapeutic agents
Several anti-cancer drugs including paclitaxel, doxorubicin, 5-fluorouracil and dexamethasone have been successfully formulated using nanomaterials.
Brain cancer is one of the most difficult malignancies to detect and treat mainly because of the difficulty in getting imaging and therapeutic agents past the blood-brain barrier and into the brain.
The nanotechnology has become the most important aspect in various fields, and now, the role in ‘Drug Delivery System’ is illustrated in the “Nano Technology Based Drug Delivery System”.
