The loading efficiency and particle size of nano/micro particles can be better controlled with these new technologies than conventional methods. Moreover, drug delivery systems are moving from simple particles to smart particles and devices with programmable functions. These technologies are also contributing to in vitro and in vivo drug testing, which are important to evaluate drug delivery systems. For in vitro tests, lab-on-a-chip models are potentially useful as alternatives to animal models. For in vivo test, nano/micro-biosensors are developed for testing chemicals and biologics with high sensitivity and selectivity. Here, we review the recent development of nanoscale and microscale technologies in drug delivery including drug delivery systems, in vitro and in vivo tests. © 2011 World Scientific Publishing Company.||Source Title:||Journal of Mechanics in Medicine and Biology||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/106684||ISSN:||02195194||DOI:||10.1142/S021951941100406X|
