Nanoparticles and their Different Drug Delivery Applications in Cancer Therapy-A Concise Review
Keywords:Applications, Bio-compatibility, Cancer therapy, Drug delivery, Nanoparticles, Target methods, Toxicity
In recent times the major challenge in the medical industry is cancer. Nevertheless, there are a number of drugs are on hand for the treatment of cancer. But imprecise distribution and disorderly release of such drugs in such conventional drug delivery applications have led to the advance of a smart nanoparticle-based drug delivery system in cancer therapy. These conventional treatments are able to cure cancer but they also have collateral toxicity to other healthy cells and tissues. Thus, to get better treatment and rise above these problems the nanoparticle-loaded drug delivery system is one of the solutions. This review highlights different type of nanocarriers such as liposomes, micelles, dendrimers, viral nanoparticles, protein-drug conjugated nanoparticles, polymeric nanoparticles, and carbon nanotubes, in drug delivery applications, their targeting methods, their advantages over chemotherapy. This article also delivers a significant overview on the future standpoint of these nanoparticles in such drug delivery systems.
