Nanotechnology has great potential to make an important role in prevention of cancer, detection, diagnosis, imaging and treatment. Solid lipid nanoparticles (SLNs) have been introduced as an alternative drug carrier system. Some of the features of SLN include good tolerability, site-specific targeting, stability, high drug payload, controlled drug release.
