Nanopharmaceuticals and Its Efficacy in Drug Delivery


Program Overview

Nanopharmaceuticals offer the ability to detect diseases at much earlier stages and the diagnostic applications could build upon conventional procedures using nanoparticles. Nanopharmaceuticals represent an emerging field where the sizes of the drug particle or a therapeutic delivery system work at the nanoscale. In the pharmaceutical industry, a long standing issue is the difficulty of delivering the appropriate dose of a particular active agent to specific disease site. Nanopharmaceuticals have enormous potential in addressing this failure of traditional therapeutics which offers site-specific targeting of active agents. Such precision targeting via nanopharmaceuticals reduces toxic systemic side effects, resulting in better patient compliance.


In today’s world economy, a pharmaceutical industry faces enormous pressure to deliver high-quality products to patients while maintaining profitability. Therefore pharmaceutical companies are applying nanotechnology to enhance or supplement drug target discovery and drug delivery. Nanopharmaceutical reduces the cost of drug discovery, design & development and enhances the drug delivery process. This results in the improved Research & Development success rate which enables faster introduction of new, cost-effective products to the marketplace.


Nanoscience and Nanotechnology are the current frontiers of all scientific and technological advancement. They deal with manipulation of materials at the 10-9m scale. This essentially means rearranging bonds at the atomic level to create new substances with hitherto unheard of properties.

Nanocomposites, 1/6th the weight of steel, yet are hundred times stronger, extremely efficient solar panels, cement which is far stronger than existing concrete, unimaginably small and fast electronic circuits, and revolutionary new medical applications have already started changing human life as we know it. There is absolutely no area of human existence that can remain untouched by these advancements.
