Innovations in solid lipid nanoparticle formulations for targeted drug delivery

Author(s):

Asmaa A ELmetwaly and Aml Ahmed Mohammed Abdallah

Abstract:

Solid lipid nanoparticles (SLNs) have emerged as promising carriers for targeted drug delivery due to their unique properties such as biocompatibility, stability, and controlled release capabilities. This review paper provides an overview of recent innovations in SLN formulations for targeted drug delivery applications. It discusses the various strategies employed to enhance the specificity and efficacy of drug delivery using SLNs, including surface modification techniques, incorporation of targeting ligands, and combination with other nanocarriers. Furthermore, recent advances in the field, such as stimuli-responsive SLNs and theranostic SLNs, are also highlighted. Challenges and future directions in the development of SLN-based targeted drug delivery systems are discussed to provide insights for further research in this area.
