Abstract

When a pharmaceutical agent is encapsulated within, or attached to, a polymer or lipid, drug safety and efficacy can be greatly improved and new therapies are possible. This has provided the impetus for active study of the design of degradable materials, intelligent delivery systems and approaches for delivery through different portals in the body.
