Publications dynamics based on the ScienceDirect scientific database for the period from 1997 to 2016 was analyzed for the areas related to the use of nanoparticles and nanostructures for targeted drug delivery. The most dynamically developing areas of research were identified.
According to the data presented in the article, most popular nowadays (i.e. characterized by the rapid growth of the number of publications and the large total number of applications) there are such areas of research as the application for targeted drug delivery of magnetic nanoparticles, silica nanoparticles, polymer nanoparticles, solid lipid nanoparticles, dendrimers, polymeric micelles and micelles of surfactants. It can be predicted that in the nearest 10 to 20 years these areas of research will develop further and probably with the lower speed growth of the number of publications which is indicative of the areas of research from the first group.
