Drug discovery is an inventive process of Medication discovered by biological target which involves the interaction of various disciplines leading to the invention of potent drug entities. The drug is most activates and inhibits the function of a biomolecule which in turn results in a therapeutic benefit to the patient. The process involves various branches of pharmacology coalesce with biotechnology, bioinformatics, molecular biology, nanotechnology and biochemistry that ultimately leads to the production of molecules of therapeutic value. The global market for drug discovery technologies has reached nearly $39.5 billion in 2013 and $46.5 billion in 2014, respectively. This market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.3% to nearly $79.5 billion for the period 2014-2019. Developing a new drug is a tedious & expensive undertaking, despite promising discoveries and multibillion-dollar investments for new drug development is quietly undergoing crisis. Currently, all existing therapies together hit only about 400 different drug targets.

'Targeted drug delivery system is a special form of drug delivery system where the medicament is selectively targeted or delivered only to its site of action or absorption and not to the non-target organs or tissues or cells.' Targeted drug delivery systems have been developed to optimize regenerative techniques. The system is based on a method that delivers a certain amount of a therapeutic agent for a prolonged period of time to a targeted diseased area within the body. This helps maintain the required plasma and tissue drug levels in the body, thereby preventing any damage to the healthy tissue via the drug. The drug delivery system is highly integrated and requires various disciplines, such as chemists, biologists, and engineers, to join forces to optimize this system.[2]

Anticancer agents are typically administered to the patients to kill cancer cells. These drugs work in two ways: by killing the cancer cells through direct exposure to the chemical agent and by inducing apoptosis (suicide of cancer cells). Current treatment strategies for cancer suffer from severe limitations, including nonspecific biodistribution of the chemotherapeutic agent, dose-limiting toxicity, and emerging drug resistance. As a result, novel cancer therapies such as liposomal drug delivery systems have rapidly evolved.

Smart drug delivery is 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. This means of delivery is largely founded on nanomedicine which plans to employ nanoparticle-mediated drug delivery in order to combat the downfalls of conventional drug delivery. These nanoparticles would be loaded with drugs and targeted to specific parts of the body where there is solely diseased tissue, thereby avoiding interaction with healthy tissue. The goal of a target drug delivery system is to prolong, localize, target and have a protected drug interaction with the diseased tissue. The conventional drug delivery system is the absorption of the drug across a biological membrane, whereas the targeted release system releases the drug in a dosage form.
