In the recent past, the targeted drug delivery has gained more attention for various advantages. Amongst the plethora of Avenues explored for targeted drug delivery. Nanoparticles are particulate dispersions or solid particles with a size in the range of 10-1000nm. The drug is dissolved, entrapped, encapsulated or attached to a nanoparticle matrix. Depending upon the method of preparation, nanoparticles, nanospheres or nanocapsules can be obtained. The major goals in designing nanoparticles as a delivery system are to control particle size, surface properties and release of pharmacologically active agents in order to achieve the site-specific action of the drug at the therapeutically optimal rate and dose regimen. Present review reveals the methods of preparation, characterization and application of several nanoparticulate drug delivery systems.
