Novel Targeted Drug Delivery Systems
The field of therapeutics has been radically transformed by the advent of novel techniques for drug delivery. Targeted or site specific drug delivery refers to place the drug to the desired body tissue. In this delivery system dose of medicament is reduced as its required concentration is increased at the target site only, hence it also minimizes the side effects of the drug and improved its therapeutic efficacy. Quantum dot, Transdermal devices are some of the aspects of targeted drug delivery. Pulmonary drug delivery routes are increasing importance.
