Nanoparticles are colloidal particles with a unique size range varying from 10 nm to <1000 nm. They are similar in size to biomolecules in our body and can be designed with biodegradable materials. The discovery of these materials has opened the door to new methods of drug formulation and delivery. Particles are designed so as they are attracted to specific cells which increase bioavailability and decrease the toxicity of the drug. This technology improves patient’s compliance by reducing the needed dosage and allows for earlier detection of diseases.

International Organization for Standardization (ISO) qualified a nanoparticle as a separate…
