Abstract

Targeting drug delivery has been of interest to several researchers, pharmacologists and clinicians for several decades now. However, despite such intensive work in the field, we have not been able to achieve absolute targeting of drug delivery, thus exposing the unsuspecting patients to several unavoidable adverse effects. With the advent of the new technique known as vitamin B12-assisted phototherapeutics, we might have just taken a right step towards a brighter future: a future without adverse effects. Vitamin B12-assisted phototherapeutic drug delivery modality has the ability to improve the delivery of drugs to a particular site of interest to an extent than ever before, thereby potentially minimizing the emergence of various undesired effects.
