Nanopharmaceuticals offer the ability to detect diseases at much earlier stages and the diagnostic applications could build upon conventional procedures using nanoparticles. Nanopharmaceuticals represent an emerging field where the sizes of the drug particle or a therapeutic delivery system work at the nanoscale. In the pharmaceutical industry, a long standing issue is the difficulty of delivering the appropriate dose of a particular active agent to specific disease site. Nanopharmaceuticals have enormous potential in addressing this failure of traditional therapeutics which offers site-specific targeting of active agents. Such precision targeting via nanopharmaceuticals reduces toxic systemic side effects, resulting in better patient compliance.

These nanoparticles mediated sustained release of drugs offer an advantage that the targeted delivery of drugs in the body is required to prevent the release of therapeutics at non-specific sites and unwanted side-effects. The conjugation of targeting moieties with drug-loaded nanoparticles can be used for receptor-mediated and targeted delivery.
