A Comprehensive Review on Nanoparticles as Drug Delivery System and Their Role for Management of Hypertension

Curr Pharm Biotechnol. 2024 Apr 2. doi: 10.2174/0113892010291414240322112508. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe current global epidemic of hypertension is not a disease in and of itself but rather a significant risk factor for serious cardiovascular conditions such as peripheral artery disease, heart failure, myocardial infarction, and stroke. Although many medications that work through various mechanisms of action are available on the market in conventional formulations to treat hypertension, these medications face significant difficulties with their bioavailability, dosing, and associated side effects, which significantly reduces the effectiveness of their therapeutic interventions. Numerous studies have shown that nanocarriers and nanoformulations can minimize the toxicity associated with high doses of the drug while greatly increasing the drug's bioavailability and reducing the frequency of dosing. <P> This review sheds light on the difficulties posed by traditional antihypertensive formulations and highlights the necessity of oral nanoparticulate systems to solve these issues. Because hypertension has a circadian blood pressure pattern, chronotherapeutics can be very important in treating the condition. On the other hand, nanoparticulate systems can be very important in managing hypertension.PMID:38566387 | DOI:10.2174/0113892010291414240322112508
