Abstract

Nanotechnology can be employed in drug delivery applications and it overcomes many drawbacks that are encountered in conventional drug delivery. Drug loaded nanocarriers can be effectively used to mask the undesirable properties of drugs and promote the safe delivery of drugs. Nanostructures are designed with different properties which modify the properties of drugs and increase the therapeutic efficacy of drugs. They can be fabricated using wide range of materials and have shown different characteristics in drug delivery for various disease conditions. In this article, different multifaceted nanocarriers are reviewed for their drug delivery applications.
