Various methods of targeted nano drug delivery have been developed in recent years to reduce side effects, toxicity, and lower drug doses [1]. The use of nanoparticles in drug delivery provides advantages in drug targeting, delivery and release along with serving in diagnosis and therapy [2]. Higher percentage of nanoparticle drug is uptaken by the target cells while larger drug particles are easily cleaned off by the human body. Nanoparticles also have large surface to volume ratio, which aids in attachment of many functional groups and thereby enhances targeting.
