Abstract

Magnetic targeting has the potential to enhance the effectiveness of drug delivery by providing an external means of guiding drug particles within the body. If magnetic fields could be used to control the motion of drug particles through the body, this would allow site-specific delivery to target locations, improving treatment efficacy and reducing systemic toxicity by increasing drug concentration at the target site and reducing the overall amount of drug administered.
