Delivering drugs through various delivery systems into the body for
successful treatment of diseases is most entrancing deeds for the pharmaceutical
analyst. Conventional drug delivery systems have various hindrances like loss of
medication and poor bioavailability of drugs. Polymer-based nanocarriers such as
polymeric nanoparticles upgrade bioavailability of drug, delivery of drug to specific
site and improve solubility of drugs. They are widely explored as controlled, precise,
sustained and continuous release systems for drug delivery and are easily incorporated
and appropriate for practically all parts of nanomedicines and bring new trust in field of
drug conveyance by redesigning drug viability and diminishing drug toxicity. This
chapter mainly focuses on polymers and techniques engaged with advancement of
polymer-based nanoparticles and their applications in therapeutic intervention.
