Nanostructured lipid carrier for bioavailability enhancement
Nanostructred lipid carrier(NLC) is second generation drug carrier system having solid matrix at room temperature. This carrier system is made up of physiological, biodegradable and biocompatible lipid materials and surfactants and is accepted by regulatory authorities for application in different drug delivery system. The main objective of this review is to explore the role of NLCs system for delivering drugs by oral route and thus increasing the oral bioavailability methods. The present review article highlights the definition and types of NLCs and their importance as colloidal carriers including the production techniques and their formulation. This review article also deals with the fate of lipids used in the NLCs formulation and the NLCs toxicity.
