Nanotechnology is an emerging field with a major  goal to target  drug delivery to improve the efficacy and safety profile. The application of nanotechnology to medicine, known as nano-medicine, concerns the use of precisely engineered materials to develop novel therapeutic and diagnostic modalities. Nanomaterials possess various unique physiochemical properties, such as small size, large surface area to mass ratio, and high reactivity, which are different from bulk materials. These properties can be used to overcome limitations found associated with traditional therapeutic and diagnostic agents. This review focuses on recent progress and development in the field nano-pharmaceuticals for various biomedical applications.
