New technologies and approaches are being developed to overcome the challenges in drug delivery. They are smart drug delivery systems, sustained release drug delivery, nano particle-based drug delivery systems, medical devices for drug delivery, drug delivery system for biologics and printing technology in dosage forms. These new methods are collectively called as drug delivery systems (DDS), which are based on multidisciplinary approaches that combine pharmaceutics, bio conjugate chemistry, molecular biology, pharmacology, polymer sciences, nanotechnology and electronics. A successful drug delivery system is the key for successful treatment of a diseases.
