Nanotechnology has been a very interesting and led to the significant progress in a biomedicine field such as controlled drug and gene delivery. Nanoparticles have been used for drug delivery because of their efficiency and in particular, biodegradable nanoparticles are now being continuously explored because of their versatility and properties like good bioavailability, very less toxicity and enhanced encapsulation. These carriers play an efficient role in cancer therapy and controlled delivery of drug molecules to the target site. The present chapter focuses on the reason for using nanoparticles as drug carrier, various methods used for polymeric nanoparticles synthesis, and various applications of biopolymers-based nanoparticles in biomedical field.
