INTRODUCTION In recent years, different nanotechnology platforms for drug delivery in the area of medical biology have gained remarkable attention. AREAS COVERED Nanoparticles (NPs) used as drug delivery vehicles consist of different materials such as natural or synthetic polymers, lipids or metals. They have an ultra-small size, large surface area-to-mass ratio and high reactivity. Although there are many data on the advantages in terms of both higher efficacy and less adverse effects of… CONTINUE READING
