Background: Drug encapsulated nanoparticle has the potency to act as an effective antidote for various diseases. It is possible to enhance the bioavailability of drug encapsulated nanoparticle, whereby the yield is significantly higher compared to the standard formulation. The development with drug encapsulated nanoparticle has been improved drastically after demonstrating its capability of showing the enhanced thermophysical properties and stability of the drug. It is also utilized widely in cancer diagnoses, whereby the surface of the nanoparticle can be modified to enable the nanocarriers to reach the targeted location. Thus, the encapsulated nanoparticle can reveal neural stem cell differentiation due to the multifaceted nature and the biophysical cues to control the cell differentiation.

Objective: In this overview, different advantages of the drug encapsulated nanoparticle for the downstream applications are narrated with its appealing characteristics.

Conclusion: The application of the drug encapsulated nanoparticle is unrestricted as it can be customized to the specific target cell in the living system.

Keywords: Encapsulated nanoparticle, drug loading, nanocarrier, biomedicine, targeted delivery, receptor.
