Delivering on Nano's Promise

Abstract:
Several nanotechnology-enabled drugs are on the market and researchers are investigating the next generation of nanoparticles for drug delivery.

In 1995, several years before the word nanotechnology began creating a buzz, Doxil (doxorubicin HCL liposome injection) received accelerated approval for the treatment of chemotherapy-refractive AIDS-related Kaposiís sarcoma. The fact that Doxil was a reformulation of an earlier drug, Adriamycin (doxorubicin), did not make it unique. What did, however, was how it was reformulated by Doxilís developer, Alza Corp., Mountain View, Calif., a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, New Brunswick, N.J.
