Abstract:


Nanotechnology and material science developments emerge in the manufacturing of various novel modes of drug delivery, which have proven scientifically promising. Polymer nanoparticles have high stability, high specificity, high drug-carrying power, control release, and potential to be used in various pathways. They usually supply hydrophilic and hydrophobic molecules with medicines. In this review, we have discussed the different types of brain tumour, different PLGA (Poly Lactic-co-Glycolic Acid) nanostructures, PLGA in brain tumour targeting, and the recent advancement of PLGA based nanoparticles. This review focused on the method of preparation of polymeric nanoparticles, the significance of EPR (Enhanced Permeability and Retention) effect with PLGA, the significance of TPGS in cancer, and discussed the pharmaceutical application of PLGA nanoparticles. We expect these polymeric nanoparticles will be very successful and efficient for disease targeting in the future and new techniques will emerge.
