UNDERSTANDING NOVEL POLYMER AND LIPID BASED CARRIER SYSTEMS IN CLINICIAN PERSPECTIVE
From the past two decades, technological advancements in science and chemistry made possible many new drug delivery systems that have the potential to completely change the course of routine therapeutic ways. Lipid and polymer-based drug delivery systems are considered to be the pillars of many drug dosage forms, irrespective of their route of administration. With increasing knowledge on their chemistry, lipids and polymers are being modified and used as potential novel drug delivery systems with smart polymers and lipid nanotechnology paving the way for efficient drug delivery into the patient. This review article covers the swing of these drug delivery systems in the current market and interpreting all this from a health care professional’s point of view.
