Recent advances in the discovery and delivery of drugs to cure chronic diseases are achieved by combination of intelligent material design with advances in nanotechnology. Since many drugs act as protagonists or antagonists to different chemicals in the body, a delivery system that can respond to the concentrations of certain molecules in the body is invaluable. For this purpose, intelligent therapeutics or "smart drug delivery" calls for the design of the newest generation of sensitive… CONTINUE READING
