In recent years, there has been significant clinical and research interest in magnetic drug targeting (MDT). MDT allows the targeted delivery of drugs only to the affected sites, alleviating the rest of the body from the potential toxic or other side effects of the drug. The underlying concept of MDT is to attach drugs to small magnetic particles which can then be manipulated by a magnetic field designed to attract the drug carrying particles to the target site [1]. This will lead to increasing localized accumulation of the drug at the target site. MDT can have great implications on pharmaceutical treatments, ranging from oncology to cardiology and beyond [2, 3].
