NANOPARTICULATE DRUG DELIVERY SYSTEMS: PROMISING APPROACHES FOR DRUG DELIVERY
Advanced drug delivery technologies can increase safety and efficacy, extend patent lives and provide competitive differentiation for biopharmaceuticals by helping drug manufacturers in differentiating new therapeutics from existing products that enable novel treatments. It provides improved therapy through increased efficacy and duration of drug activity, decreased dosing frequency, convenient routes of administration and improved targeting of drug to specific sites reducing unwanted side effects. The role of advanced drug delivery based on Nanoparticles is discussed herein. The growing range of nanoparticle based drug delivery methods is assured of changing the formulation characteristics of new compounds and extending the lifecycle of existing compounds. In order to achieve this, article deals with the fundamental understanding of their properties, types, manufacturing, characterization, challenges and emerging trends in the field of drug delivery.Keywords: Nanoparticles, Biopharmaceuticals, Nanoparticulate drug delivery.
