Abstract

Limitations in conventional chemotherapy have resulted in efforts to develop a good drug delivery system for the treatment of several diseases. Many promising drugs that were identified failed to reach the market due to associated drug delivery problems. The ultimate aim of drug delivery systems is to tailor-make the drug formulation to meet the individual requirements under the control of pathophysiological or in vivo conditions, rather than the in vitro characteristics. However, a challenge remains to develop cost-effective, better, and safer nanomaterials ...
