Firstly, the idea of using nanotechnology in medicine was developed from a creative imagination which based on that small machine men can be designed and after entering these machines into the human body they are used to perform molecular restorations at the cellular level. Also, in this research we introduce common nanoparticles, fullerenes, nano micelles solid lipid nanoparticles, metal nanoparticles, polymeric nanoparticles, dendrimers, nano shells, quantum dots, nano liposomes. In this research, the features of particles and know structures and applicable in drug delivery are mentioned. The purpose of this research is to introduce the application of nanoparticles for Nano medicine for excellence in nano medicine development.
