Nanostructured Lipid Carriers: Potential Avenues for Research

Nanotechnology has seen a substantial increase in study and use in the realm of medicine in recent years. Nanomedicine, or the use of nanotechnology in medicine, enables the creation of nanoparticle-therapeutic carriers. Nanoparticles have been found to be essential for the delivery of medications that are poorly water soluble. Liposomes, micelles, polymeric nanoparticles, and solid lipid nanoparticles are all examples of nanocarriers that have opened up new possibilities in drug delivery. Nanostructured lipid carrier system, the “new kid on the block,” is gaining traction among scientists. Its better properties over other nanocarriers are the sole reason for this. Researchers have used a variety of liquid and solid lipids in the search for nanostructured lipid carriers (NLCs). However, the utility of NLCs in delivering therapeutic substances to specific body areas has not been completely utilised in the treatment of diseases.
