Background: Nanopharmaceuticals serve as emerging forms of modern medicines, which include nanomedicines, nanosimilars, nanotheranostics, nanodevices, and many more. In the last two decades, a large number of nano-based products have reached the market and are being used clinically.
Objectives: Unlike conventional pharmaceutical products, nanopharmaceuticals behave differently both in vitro and in vivo, and therefore, the development of their generic versions needs special attention to replicate the similar drug release pattern leading to an identical therapeutic outcome. Further, drug-device combinations and 3D products are the latest advancements in precision medicine delivery and development.
Methods: The regulatory guidelines for these products are being framed at many stages by various regulatory agencies like USFDA/EMA and still are in infancy at the moment if we look at wider perspectives and applications of nanomedicine.
Results: For a formulation scientist, it is much needed that well-explained and directive guidelines should be made available before leading to the development of the generic versions of these nano-cargos.
Conclusion: Here, in this review, we have summarized the silent features of the regulatory perspectives related to nanotechnology based next generation therapeutics and diagnostics.
