Abstract

Herbal medicines, since ancient old age and have been recognized by physicians and patients for their better therapeutic value as they have fewer adverse effects as compared with modern medicines. The side effects of chemotherapy in cancer treatment are major concern and hence the need of the day is to find the effective treatment with fewer side effects. The main reason behind development of alternative drug delivery is to increase efficiency and safety of drug delivery and provide more convenience to the patient. Herbal formulations may be more advantageous over conventional formulations by improving component solubility, enhancing bioavailability, reducing dose, achieving constant therapeutic dose over extended time, enhancing stability, protecting physical and chemical degradation. The use of herbal formulations for novel drug delivery systems is more beneficial and has more advantages compared to others. The objective of the review article is to summarize role of herbal plant/constituent nanoparticles against cancer.
