Abstract

The enormous growth of nanotechnology paved ways for the development of advanced drug delivery systems having ultraprecision and control over the release of drugs. Different strategies are adopted to ensure targeted and controlled drug delivery, such as encapsulation, biomarkers, and artificial nanocarriers. These nanocarriers may consist of biological materials or chemically synthesized materials or combination of both, such as protein, lipid, chitosan, lactic acid, polymers, fullerenes, and silica. Researchers ...
