Graphical Abstract:


Background: Health is a lively state of the body which adjusts and adopt with the response to various environmental changes. There are several features that can influence the health status of human beings. Therefore, the continuous research study is highly essential to maintain a proper health care system in the community.

Objective: The diverse area of innovation was made in nanotechnology for diagnosis and treatment of life-threatening diseases, such as obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disorders, cancer, leukemia, neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's diseases, etc. Nanotechnology generally refers to the materials, devices, and systems in nanoscale which provides considerably improved physical, chemical and biological property.

Methods: It is technology which deals with the design, synthesis, characterization of substances, devices and systems by arranging shape and size at their nanometer scale. It involves multidisciplinary research which includes both health science and technology for the treatment of human health. Nanotechnology can be applied at the cellular level in the human body with a high degree of specificity to treat the various diseases.

Conclusion: This technology is potentially targeted to diseased tissue to achieve maximum therapeutic efficacy with fewer side effects. Nowadays, the rapidity of revolutionary discoveries in the field of nanotechnology is expected to accelerate in the next decade globally.

Keywords: Nanotechnology, novel approaches, drugs, development, delivery system, diseases, health.
