ABSTRACT:
The advent of nanotechnology in medicine has raised several new prospects in the improvement of diagnosis and treatment of human diseases. Nanoparticles are finding their way into biology in the form of drug carriers. The physical sizes of nanomaterials create a strong possibility for their interactions with biological systems. The property of their large surface area available to load materials is utilized in current therapies. By altering their size, composition, and surface chemistry, nanoparticles can be developed into a universal platform with multifunctional capabilities to meet the requirements of different drug delivery systems. It is envisioned that specific drug delivery to targeted tissues will minimize side effects and toxicity. We are primarily focusing on the achievement of nanotechnology in nanoscale drug and gene delivery. Additionally, a specific emphasis has been placed on the use of nanotechnology to improve controlled drug release and sustainable drug delivery in solid tumours.
