The Present Study is to analyse the targeted delivery of Ursodiol, a drug used in the treatment of Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC) using Lipid Bilayer Nano-Particles or Solid Lipid Nano Particles(SLNPs) which is taken for in-silico binding studies with various 4 different liver receptors. 3 Solid Lipid Nano Particles are chosen and Binding Efficiency of the Drug with Solid Lipid Nano Particles are Studied Using DFT Analysis and FEM Analysis. It was seen that the complete drug binding is seen in Small Unilamellar Vessicle (SUV). Chosen Liver Receptors with Ursodiol of the SUV are checked for binding studies using AutoDock 4. The Study revealed that Liver X Receptor a has a greater efficiency in binding with the Solid Lipid Nano Particles.
