Since the beginning of the 1990’s the lipid nanoparticles were getting a growing interest from the pharmaceutical technology research groups worldwide. SLN was referred to as alternative carrier system to traditional colloidal system such as liposomes, emulsions and polymeric nanoparticles due to its exceptional stability, scaling-up potential and biocompatible components. A new generation of nano structured lipid carriers (NLCs) consisting of a lipid matrix with a special nanostructure has been developed. This nanostructure improves drug loading and firmly incorporates the drug during storage. The present article discusses the nanostructured lipid carrier as a novel drug delivery system.
