Nanotechnology is gaining more importance in various disciplines of science. In medicine, nanotechnology may be useful for either diagnostics of diseases or its treatment. The nanotechnology is applied in manufacture of imaging agents, nanoelectronic biosensors, nanodevices, and microdevices with nanostructures. Applications concerned to treatment of diseases are the great achievement by the research scientists and nanotechnology based drug delivery systems are expected to significantly redesign the mode of existing drugs as favorable drug pharmacokinetics, biodistribution profiles, improved efficacy and safety can be achieved. Thus, nanomedicine revolutionized the therapeutics and diagnostics. Nano-based Drug delivery systems constitutes of a significant portion of nanomedicine which includes drug-polymer conjugates, polymeric nanoparticles, solid-lipid nanoparticles, liposomes, dendrimers and polymer micelles etc. vs Usha Y Nayak, Role Of Nano-Particles In Drug Therapy-Drug Delivery Approach.
