Nanogels have attracted considerable attention as nanoscopic drug
carriers, particularly for site-specific or time-controlled delivery of
bioactive mediators. A high diversity of polymer systems and the simple
modification of their physicochemical features have provided
multipurpose forms of nanogel preparations. Nanogels have outstandingly
high stability, drug loading ability, biologic consistence, good
permeation capability and can be responsive to environmental stimuli.
Great potential has been shown by nanogels in many fields including
delivery of genes, chemotherapy drugs, diagnosis, targeting of specific
organs and several others. This review focuses mainly on different types
of nanogels, methods of preparation including methods of drug loading,
different modes of biodegradation mechanisms as well as main mechanisms
of drug release from nanogels. Recent applications of nanogels are also
briefly discussed and exemplified.
