Magnetic Targeted Carriers - Targeted drug delivery system
Targeted drug delivery is a method of delivering medication to a patient in a manner that increases the concentration of the medication in some parts of the body relative to others.
It concentrates the medication in the tissue of interest, reducing the relative concentration of the medication in the remaining tissues. Thus improves Therapeutic efficacy by reducing side effects. Targeted drug delivery can be used to treat most dreadful diseases live Cardiac, DM and Cancers.

There are different types of MTC and they work with different mechanism and have wide range of application.
