The pharmaceutical field has long been a model for industry, creating best practices in Research and Development, manufacturing, marketing and other disciplines. As such, it also has recorded historic levels of profitability. But an evolving marketplace, changing regulatory standards, increased manufacturing costs and a number of other factors have begun exerting pressure on pharmaceutical producers. One of the bright spots for the industry is nanoparticles technologies, which offer seemingly unlimited potential to help solve health problems and thus grow the pharmaceutical business. In recent years, various nanotechnology platforms in the area of medical biology, including both diagnostics and therapy, have gained remarkable attention. This paper explores the potential success of these particles in the clinic, which relies on consideration of important parameters such as nanoparticles fabrication strategies, their physical properties, drug loading efficiencies, drug release potential, and various therapeutic applications.
