Over the past ten years, the research and delivery of drugs has emerged as a rapidly expanding, highly capital-intensive, and demanding industry. This procedure is costly and time-consuming, and it has to deal with issues with rapid excretion, degradability, toxicity, low efficacy, biocompatibility, and low bioavailability. Nanomaterial are superior to conventional drug because they have remarkable qualities such as a high invasion rate, regulated, targeted, and gradual drug release, as well as easy receptor accessibility. Despite all of its importance, one of the main issues with different nanoparticles utilized as medication delivery systems is their toxicity. This review discusses the issue surrounding conventional drugs, the importance of nanomedicines in medication administration, and their potential for toxicity and also their future aspect that helps to improve health.
