Abstract: 

Nanoparticles are expected to maintain better structural integrity once introduced inside the body due to their cross-linked structure. Advances in nanotechnology will also contribute significant improvements to the quality and performance of medical diagnostic products. Nanosized labels, probes and biosensors will greatly enhance the speed, accuracy, capabilities and cost-effectiveness of in vitro diagnostic testing, drug discovery and medical research procedures. In recent years, significant effort has been devoted towards the development of nanotechnology for delivery of drugs and other biopharmaceuticals such as proteins, peptides and genes, since such systems allow controlling the release of agents to achieve the desired therapeutic level in target tissues for the required duration and for optimal therapeutic efficacy. Eventually, pharmaceutical applications of nanotechnology will extend into all major therapeutic classes, encompassing numerous formulations and delivery systems.
