Abstract

A REVIEW: TARGETED DRUG DELIVERY SYSTEM

Suresh Choudhary*, Santosh Waghmare and Hemant Kamble

Abstract

Drug targeting is a new drug delivery strategy that tries to deliver the drug to the target location of action or absorption without releasing it elsewhere. The delivery method is meant to keep the drug in its original state until it reaches and releases at the target spot. Targeted drug delivery systems provide various advantages over traditional drug administration systems, including increased pharmacological action, less adverse effects, and a lower administered dose. The basic goal of a targeted drug delivery system is to direct the therapeutic agent's pharmacological effect only to sick organs while leaving healthy organs alone, which is especially important when treating cancer with chemotherapeutic drugs. Medication targeting can be accomplished utilising a variety of carriers that keep the drug intact while transporting it to a predetermined organ or tissue. Nanotubes and nanowires, nanoshells, quantum dots, nanopores, gold nanoparticles, dendrimers, noisomes, ufasomes, virosomes, cubosomes, nanobots, and transferosomes are some of the carriers that can be utilised for drug targeting.

Keywords: Drug targeting, Drug delivery system, strategies for drug targeting.
