Abstract

Silica nanoparticles offer a promising platform for the delivery of drugs, in particular for the drugs which lack water solubility, target capability and have non-specific distribution, systematic toxicity and low therapeutic index. In this review, we focus on the synthesis and therapeutic (particularly, anti-cancer) applications of Curcumin loaded Silica Nanoparticles. Various surface modifications of silica nanoparticles have been discussed that are used to enhance their therapeutic applications. The characterization techniques and study of their biocompatibility have also been presented.

Drug delivery with nano-materials – significance and advances in Medicinal Chemistry

The development and evaluation of new drug delivery systems (particularly with nanoscale materials) has been potentiating the advances in drug development. This special issue is meant to cover recent advances in development and application of nano delivery systems, peptide based delivery systems, self assembly of peptides structures and similar natural systems, Gene delivery, lipids, liposomes, miscelle, nanoparticular and carbon nanomaterials in drug delivery, mechanistic understanding of delivery systems, and other development of nanomaterials for drug delivery in medicinal chemistry.
