[Each drug has some pharmacological properties that can produce biological effects on the human body; these effects are engendered by the interactions between the drug and specific receptors at the drug’s site of action.]
[As stated in the last chapter, a drug delivery system is responsible to influence and determine the concentration profile of a drug, the kinetics of drug release, the site, and duration of drug action, and finally prevent the unwelcome side effects of a drug.]
[Physical, chemical, and biological properties of a drug carrier determine how it can obtain to its predetermined aim. In this chapter, some of these features are evaluated.]
[Drug concentration must be placed between two thresholds, referred as the minimum effective concentration and the maximum toxic concentration, to be effective and nontoxic. Usually, a drug is released in three manners.]
[Because of the harsh and hydrophilic environment of the body, some more potent but poor water-soluble drugs molecule become developed by Shij et al. (Nano Lett 10:3223–3230, 2010 ).]
[As it was mentioned in the previous chapters, the efficiency of medication is dependent on several parameters such as drug release profile, drug transport mechanisms, and most importantly the interaction between a drug and its surrounding environment in the human body.]
