Polymeric nanocarriers have been gaining popularity in drug delivery, mainly owing to increased surface-to-volume ratio, which results in improved interaction with epithelial surfaces and, in some cases, in the ability to cross epithelial barriers. Moreover, nanoparticles protect encapsulated molecules, thus permitting their administration through ..
