Rapid developments in the field of nanotechnology are generating enormous interest in prospecting the potential of multifunctional therapeutic nanovectors in the field of personalized medicine. Although the nanomaterials are of same dimensions to many cellular machineries, their interaction with cells, tissues and organs of the body are not well understood. This in turn forms the rationale for a comprehensive study of these nanoplatforms in various disease models in terms of their toxicity, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and pharmacogenetics. Such a study will significantly aid in our quest in translating its application from bench to bedside.
