Abstract :

Supramolecular biovectors (SMBVs) are the polymers made from intrinsic nutrient carrier systems of the body such as lipoproteins by repeating units held together with noncovalent bonds. The SMBVs are nanosized virus like particular system comprising of polysaccharide core surrounded by phospholipid layer. These polymers combine good material properties with low viscosity and easy to handle makes them advantageous for drug delivery applications. The purpose of this review is to listing various applications of them in site-specific drug delivery and gene therapy. Apart from this review is highlighted on the chemistry, mechanism, fabrication, design and various approaches supramolecular hydrogels. Further the developments of the supramolecular polymers using Cyclodextrin have widened the arena of drug delivery, non-viral gene delivery due to the strong DNA-binding ability has expected to provide a new paradigm for biomaterials.
