  • Drug Delivery  Drug delivery is the method or process of administering a pharmaceutical compound to achieve a therapeutic effect.  Drug delivery technologies that modify  Drug release profiles  Absorption  Distribution  Elimination for the benefit of improving product efficacy and safety and patient convenience and compliance.
  • Drug Delivery Most common methods of delivery include the  Non-invasive peroral (through the mouth)  Topical (skin)  Transmucosal (nasal, buccal/sublingual, vaginal, ocular and rectal)  Inhalation routes.  Parental (IV, IM, IA, ISp etc)
  • Generation of Drug Delivery System 1st Generation 2nd Generation 3rd Generation 4th Generation 5th Generation Tablet Capsule Ointment Suspension Emulsion Suppositories Repeat action tablet Prolonged action tablet Enteric Coated tablet Timed Release tablet Osmotically Control System Swelling Controlled Magnetic Controlled System Diffusion Controlled System Targeted DDS Modulated DDS Self Regulated DDS Gene Therapy
  • TARGETED DRUG DELIVERY Targeted drug delivery, sometimes called smart drug delivery • A method of delivering medication to a patient in a manner that increases the concentration of the medication in some parts of the body relative to others. • The goal of a targeted drug delivery system is to prolong, localize, target and have a protected drug interaction with the diseased tissue.
  • Advantage of targeted drug delivery system over traditional drug delivery system • Increased efficacy of the drug. • Site specific delivery. • Decreased toxicity/side effects. • Increased convenience. • Better patient compliance. • Viable treatments for previously incurable diseases.
  • Novel drug delivery system It is advance drug delivery system which improve • Drug potency • Control drug release to give a sustained therapeutic effect • Provide greater safety • Finally it is to target a drug specifically to a desired tissue
  • “Nanotechnology is the art and science of manipulating matter at the nanoscale” which is about 1 to 100 nanometers. Nanotechnology
  • 1.Medicine 2.Energy i) Reduction of energy consumption ii) Increasing the efficiency of energy production iii) The use of more user friendly energy systems 3.Information and Communication 4.Heavy Industries i) Aerospace ii) Refineries iii) Vehicle manufactures Fields using Nano Technology
  • DRUG DELIVERY - Employing nanoparticles to deliver drugs. - Oral administration of drugs.
  • THERAPY TECHNIQUES - Buckyballs - Nanoshells - Nanoparticles - Aluminosilicate Nanoparticles - Nanofibers
  • ANTI-MICROBIAL TECHNIQUES - Nanoparticle Cream - Nanocapsules - Cell repairs using Nanorobots
  • i) Nanotechnology-on-a-chip is one more dimension of lab-on-a-chip technology. ii) Magnetic nanoparticles, bound to a suitable antibody, are used to label specific molecules, structures or microorganisms. iii) Gold nanoparticles tagged with short segments of DNA can be used for detection of genetic sequence in a sample.
  • i) Nanotechnology can help to reproduce or to repair damaged tissue. ii) “Tissue engineering” makes use of artificially stimulated cell proliferation by using suitable nanomaterial-based scaffolds and growth factors. iii) Tissue engineering might replace today’s conventional treatments like organ transplants or artificial implants. Advanced forms of tissue engineering may lead to life extension.
  • Applications of Nanoparticles to Drug Discovery and Biology  Fluorescent biological markers  Detection of proteins  Probing of DNA structures  MRI contrast enhancement  Separation and purification of biological molecules and cells  Tumor destruction via heating  Tissue engineering  Drug and gene delivery
  • Possible Opportunities for Nanotechnology in Drug Delivery Enhanced drug properties such as:  Solubility  Rate of dissolution  Oral bioavailability  Targeting ability Enhanced dosing requirements: Lower dosed administered Better side effect profile More convenient dosage forms
  • FDA-Regulated Products Expected to be Impacted by Nanotechnology  Drugs (delivery systems)  Medical devices  Biotechnology products  Tissue engineering products  Vaccines  Cosmetics  Combination products
  •  Tree-like polymers, branching out from a central core and subdividing into hierarchical branching units - Not more that 15 nm in size, Mol. Wt very high - Very dense surface surrounding a relatively hollow core (vs. the linear structure in traditional polymers) Dendrimers
  •  In 2008 there were over 10 000 scientific reports and 1000 patents dealing with dendritic structures. Courtesy of: http://www.uea.ac.uk/cap/wmcc/anc.htm Dendrimers
  • Dendritic Family
  • Structural Components of Dendrmers
  • drugs drug delivery –  Small molecules  Proteins  Tissue targeting Drug solublization RNA/DNA delivery Diagnostics & materials applications Applications in Pharmaceutical Industry
  •  Improved efficacy of drugs  Extension of drug half-life  Reduced toxicity  Active or passive targeting  Product lifecycle management  Improved solubility of drugs  Drug “rescue” Applications in Drug Delivery
  •  Utilizing a dendrimer construct the aqueous solubility of the drug Paclitaxel was increased >9,000X. Paclitaxel aqueous solubility 0.8 mg/mL Improved Drug Solubility
  •  Dendrimers are particularly attractive as they offer a high drug-loading capacity.  2 methods of dendrimer drug delivery are  Encapsulation of drugs  Dendrimer –drug conjugates Mechanism of drug delivery: Dendrimer
  •  Interactions between the dendrimer and drug to trap the drug inside the dendrimer. Such a system can be used to encapsulate drugs and provide controlled delivery.  ,eg: DNA was complexed with PAMAM dendrimers for gene delivery applications, and hydrophobic drugs and dye molecules were incorporated into various dendrimer cores. Mechanism of drug delivery: Dendrimer
  • Dendrimer–Drug Conjugates In dendrimer–drug conjugates, the drug is attached through a covalent bond either directly or via a linker/spacer to the surface groups of a dendrimer. Dendrimers have been conjugated to various biologically active molecules such as drugs, antibodies, sugar moieties and lipids Mechanism of drug delivery: Dendrimer
  •  The drug loading can be tuned by varying the generation number of the dendrimer  Release of the drug can be controlled by incorporating degradable linkages between the drug and dendrimer  Conjugates of PAMAM dendrimers with cisplatin, a potent anticancer drug with non-specific toxicity and poor water solubility.  The conjugates show increased solubility, decreased systemic toxicity and selective accumulation in solid tumors Mechanism of drug delivery: Dendrimer
  • Drugs Delivered Through Dendrimers
  • Phospholipids Polar Head Groups Three carbon glycerol
  • An artificial microscopic vesicle consisting of an aqueous core enclosed in one or more phospholipid layers. Used to convey vaccines, drugs, enzymes, or other substances to target cells or organs. Liposome
  • Liposome  Spherical vesicles with a phospholipid bilayer Hydrophilic Hydrophobic
  • Liposomes can be subcategorized  Small unilamellar vesicles (SUV), 25 to 100 nm in size that consist of a single lipid bilayer  Large unilamellar vesicles (LUV), 100 to 400 nm in size that consist of a single lipid bilayer  Multilamellar vesicles (MLV), 200 nm to several microns, that consist of two or more concentric bilayers  Vesicles above 1 µm are known as giant vesicles.
  • 1. Conventional Liposomes  Prepared form natural neutral and anionic lipids and have nonspecific interactions with their environment  Relatively unstable  Have low carrying capacities  Tend to be “leaky” to entrapped drug substances . Types of Liposomes
  •  Non-conventional Liposomes  Small sized, surface modified to overcome some of the short comings of conventional liposomes  Modified to reduce negative charge, decrease fluidity and cause steric hinderance to phagocytosis  Properties altered (e.g. by incorporation of cholesterol)  Polymerized liposomes more stable and less “leaky” Types of Liposomes
  • Uses of Liposomes  Chelation therapy for treatment of heavy meta poisoning  Enzyme Replacement Diagnostic imaging of tumors  Study of membranes  Cosmetics  Drug Delivery
  •  They can deliver agents directly into cells.  Routes:  Intravenous (iv)  Subcutenuous (sc)  Intramuscular (im)  Topical  Pulmonary Route of Liposomes in Drug Delivery
