ABSTRACT:
Gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) have been profoundly investigated for drug delivery applications. Various widely used small drugs molecules when conjugated either covalently or non-covalently with the AuNPs, showed improved therapeutic effect with reduced dose and adverse effects as compared to drug alone. This review focuses on therapeutic efficiency of AuNPs-small drug molecule conjugates as anti-cancer, anti-bacterial, anti-retroviral and anti-arthritic agents. The basic approaches of conjugation, brief of procedure followed for activity determination and mechanism of action of conjugates have also been discussed.
