Graphical Abstract:


Background: Nanopharmaceutical is the field that arises gradually but many challenges are also still there. This review aims to identify these challenges and give the focus on their rectification.

Methods: In this paper, we memorize the safety issues, patented manufacturing procedure, applications and regulatory aspects of the nanopharmaceuticals by using the peer-reviewed research literatures. All the screened literatures described the quality content of nanopharmaceuticals with relevancy to biomedical and pharmaceutical field.

Results: Nanopharmaceuticals have great potential to resolve the different issues such as; site specific drug delivery however, many challenges are also arising in their commercialization. In the recent years, some nanopharmaceuticals have the desired quality and safety for the public, have been approved by the regulatory agencies but this field is still a thrust area that demands a lot of attention.

Conclusion: The present review article confirms the importance of nanopharmaceuticals and impart the knowledge for making the significant approaches and strategies to overcome the manufacturing, safety, legal and regulatory issues related to nanopharmaceuticals.

Keywords: Nanopharmaceuticals, nanoformulation, approved nanopharmaceuticals, nanotechnology, nano imaging agents, toxicity of nanoparticles.
