Innovations in Drug Delivery: From Nanoparticles to Biomaterials

Dr Mayur Rasiklal Yadav

Abstract: The field of drug delivery has seen significant advancements, with nanoparticles emerging as a groundbreaking technology. However, these nanoparticle-based systems face challenges such as potential toxicity, limited scalability, and regulatory hurdles. As a response, the focus has been shifting towards biomaterials, such as hydrogels, dendrimers, and biopolymers, which offer unique properties and can interact with biological systems in more predictable and safe ways. This paradigm shift aims to enhance drug delivery efficiency, minimize adverse effects, improve patient compliance, and pave the way for personalized medicine. Biomaterials offer biocompatibility, tunable properties, and multifunctionality, which can be engineered to respond to environmental stimuli, encapsulate a wide range of therapeutic agents, and reduce immunogenicity. Hybrid systems that combine the advantages of nanoparticles and biomaterials create synergistic effects for enhanced drug delivery. The transition from nanoparticles to biomaterials in drug delivery presents numerous benefits, including improved therapies, fewer adverse effects, more patient compliance, enhanced regenerative medicine, smart drug delivery systems, innovative therapeutic modalities, sustainability, and environmental advantages. However, realizing these implications will require ongoing research, collaboration, and careful consideration of ethical and regulatory challenges.
