Nano Based Drug Delivery

by Jitendra Naik

Successful treatment of various illnesses and disorders heavily relies on efficient drug delivery vehicles in order for drug to reach the site of action. The drug delivery systems must provide controlled permeability and distribution of drug, targeting only those organs or biomolecules  to be treated. 

Recently, nano drug delivery systems have shown promising treatment application for many illnesses such as infectious diseases, viral infections, cancer and genetic disorders. They could be used in combination with different therapies including radio-therapy, gene-therapy etc.  Nano drug delivery systems overcome traditional limitations of conventional drug delivery systems such as poor bioavalilaility and biodistribution. With nano drug delivery system it is possible to penetrate those sites which are difficult to reach by other drug delivery systems. This way cell-specific targeting is achieved minimising the influence on vital tissues and undesirable side effects.

The aim of this book is to overview recent advances and achievements in nano drug delivery systems and to provide wide coverage and possible future applications in the field.
