  • Nanoemulsion for the Effective Treatment and Management of Anti-tubercular
           Drug Therapy
    • Abstract: Background: Tuberculosis is considered as one of the deadliest diseases of human existence. Since ancient age the treatment of tuberculosis has been highly challenging primarily owing to the pathogenic nature of the Mycobacterium and its diverse spots of localization in human body including lungs, liver, spleen, eye, meninges and lymph nodes. Methods: The conventional drug therapy employed for the treatment of tuberculosis is not highly satisfactorily owing to low oral bioavailability of the drugs. The evolution of nano-technology recently in few decades has completely revolutionized the treatment of diverse diseases and so is the tuberculosis. Nanotechnology not only possesses enormous potential for improving the biopharmaceutical performance, but also allows the delivery of therapeutic molecules to the desired site of action. Diverse types of nanocarriers have been employed for the treatment of tuberculosis infections. In this regard, nanoemulsions are considered as one of the promising alternatives for augmenting the bioavailability of the antitubercular drugs through oral route for improving their therapeutic efficacy. Conclusion: The nanoemulsion loaded with antitubercular drugs can easily cross the biological barriers to reach the systemic circulation and consequently in the target for reducing the load of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Besides, the lipidic nature of such systems facilitates targeting of the drugs to the lymph nodes, thus improves drug bioavailability and reduction of the dosing frequency. In lieu of this, the present article compiles the basics of nanoemulsions in brief along with an updated account on their applications in delivering antitubercular drugs for enhanced immunization. Moreover, overview of patent literature published in this area has also been included in the manuscript.

  • Nano-carriers for the Treatment of Tuberculosis
    • Abstract: Background: Nano size based drug delivery systems are an emerging technique with the potential to develop new strategies involving handling of drugs at the nanometer scale. There are many nano-based drug delivery systems that have been extensively reported as drug carriers for the treatment of tuberculosis. Methods: There are numerous nano sized drug delivery systems like lipid nanoparticles, polymeric micelle, carbon nanotubes and polymeric nanoparticles that have been reported for a long time to treat diseases. There are a number of drawbacks in conventional TB dosage forms such as the development of multiple drug resistance, resulting in intolerable toxicity and high drug dose required. So, to overcome the drawbacks of conventional therapy, there is a need for a new drug delivery system with an aim to reduce the side effects of drug treatment. Nano-sized based drug delivery systems have considerable potential for the treatment of tuberculosis. These delivery systems have several advantages like high stability, high loading capacity, the feasibility of incorporation of both hydrophilic and hydrophobic drugs, and feasibility of variable routes of administration, and prolonged drug release from the matrix. These advantages enable enhanced drug solubility, bioavailability, reduced dosing frequency, high targeting, and may resolve the problem of non adherence to prescribed therapy, which is one of the major obstacles in the control of tuberculosis epidemics. Conclusion: This article gives an exhaustive review of patents and research papers published over the years on the challenges, the current treatment therapy of the disease faces, and potential advantages of nano sized formulations to offer more effective treatment and prevention for tuberculosis.

  • Nanostructured Therapeutic Carriers for Tuberculosis Treatment: Approaches
           & Challenges
    • Abstract: Background: The diseases tuberculosis, triggered by intracellular pathogens, is a major problem for the global medical professionals. Treatments for these diseases through conventional dosage form consist of long-term therapy with multiple drugs, leading to several side effects and contribute to low patient compliance and drug resistance. The pathogens are found to be situated in the intracellular compartments of the cells, which ultimately results in additional blockades to effective treatment. Therefore, improved and more efficient therapies for such intracellular diseases are required. Methods: This review discusses the potential of nanomedicine and related patents to improve intracellular disease chemotherapy. To complete the objective, we searched bibliographic databases of indexed literature using a focused and structured criteria. The quality and characteristics of selected papers were assessed using standard parameters with qualitative analysis having a conceptual framework. Results: Nanoparticle-based drug delivery systems are suitable for the treatment of illnesses, such as tuberculosis. Due to the unique size-dependent properties, nanocarriers such as nanoparticles, liposomes, niosomes and microspheres offer the opportunity to develop new therapeutic and diagnostic tools. The ability to integrate drugs into nanosystems displays a new standard in pharmacotherapy that could be used for cell-targeted drug therapy. Experimental data showed the possibility of intermittent chemotherapy with main antituberculosis drugs by employing nanocarriers. Besides the advantage of the controlled release of medications in organs, the other benefits of the nanocarriers include the possibility of various routes of therapy, reduction in drug dosage and adverse effects, reduced possibility of drug interactions, and drug-resistant targeting. Published literature including patented studies suggests that nanomedicine mediated drug delivery may improve tuberculosis chemotherapy by offering benefits such as targeting to the specific organs, sustained and controlled drug release, tuberculosis diagnosis, drug delivery to the pathogen’s intracellular location, and tuberculosis vaccine development. Conclusion: The properties of nanomedicine may prove beneficial in developing improved, efficacious or alternative therapies for tuberculosis diseases.
