Drug delivered can have significant effect on its efficacy. Some drugs have an optimum concentration range with in which maximum benefit is derived and concentrations above (or) below the range can be toxic or produce no therapeutic effect. Various drug delivery and drug targeting systems are currently under development. The main goal for developing such delivery systems is to minimize drug degradation and loss, to prevent harmful side effects and to increase bioavailability. Targeting is the ability to direct the drug loaded system to the site of interest. Among drug carrier one can name soluble polymers, microparticles made of insoluble (or) biodegradable natural and synthetic polymers, microcapsules, cells, cell ghosts, lipoproteins, liposomes and micelles. Two major mechanisms can be distinguished for addressing the desired sites for drug release, (a) Passive and (b) Active targeting. Controlled drug carrier systems such as micellar solutions, vescicles and liquid crystal dispersions, as well as nanoparticle dispersions consisting of small particles of 10 – 400 nm show great promise as drug delivery systems.

A Route of Drug Administration in pharmacology and toxicology is the way by which a medication, liquid, harm, or other substance is taken into the body. Routes of organization are by and large grouped by the area at which the substance is connected. Basic illustrations incorporate oral and intravenous organization. Courses can likewise be grouped in view of where the objective of activity is. Action may be topical (nearby), enteral (framework wide impact, yet conveyed through the gastrointestinal tract), or parenteral (fundamental activity, yet conveyed by courses other than the GI tract). Courses of organization are normally arranged by application area (or article). The course or course the dynamic substance takes from application area to the area where it has its objective impact is generally rather a matter of pharmacokinetics (concerning the procedures of take-up, dissemination, and end of medications). Special cases incorporate the transdermal or transmucosal courses, which are still commonly referred to as routes of administration.
The locations of the target effect of active substances are usually rather a matter of pharmacodynamics (concerning e.g. the physiological effects of drug). An exception is topical administration, which generally means that both the application location and the effect thereof are local. Topical administration is sometimes defined as both a local application location and local pharmacodynamics effect, and sometimes merely as a local application location regardless of location of the effects.

To enhance therapeutic effects and reduce the related side effects, active drug molecules should selectively accumulate in the disease area for a prolonged period with high controllability. Drug delivery refers to the approaches, formulations, technologies, and systems for transporting therapeutics in the body as needed to safely and efficiently achieve their desired therapeutic effects. Conventional drug delivery systems (DDSs) are often accompanied by systemic side effects that mainly attributable to their nonspecific bio-distribution and uncontrollable drug release characteristics. To overcome these limitations, advanced controlled DDSs have been developed to achieve the release of payloads at the target sites in a spatial controlled manner. In comparison to the conventional DDSs, the smart controlled DDSs can effectively reduce the dosage frequency, while maintaining the drug concentration in targeted organs/tissues for a longer period of time. In this sense, the controlled DDSs provide broad insights and fascinating properties for decreasing drug concentration fluctuation, reducing drug toxicitiesand improving therapeutic efficacy.
With the unprecedented progresses of biomedical nanotechnology during the past few decades, conventional drug delivery systems (DDSs) have been involved into smart DDSs with stimuli-responsive characteristics. Benefiting from the response to specific internal or external triggers, those well-defined Nano-platforms can increase the drug targeting efficacy, in the meantime; reduce side effects/toxicities of payloads, which are key factors for improving patient compliance.
