Highlights from the list include:

        • The first nanoparticle therapy - INFeD® - was approved by the FDA in 1974 to treat iron deficiency induced anemia.

          • 8 of the 60 approved nanoparticle drugs (13%) have either been discontinued, recalled, or abandoned in the last decade.

            • Indications for nanoparticle drugs have a large range including: Flu, Schizophrenia, Cancers, Iron Deficiency, Bone Growth, ADHD, Diabetes, MS, Hepatitis, Macular Degeneration, Arthritis, Crohns Disease, High Cholesterol, and more.


      More Nanoparticles Set to Gain Approval:

      With many more nanoparticle therapies in clinical development, there are sure to be significant additions to the list of approved nanoparticles in the next 5 to 10 years. As new nanoparticles gain approval, or marketing status changes for existing therapies, NanoHybrids will be sure to update this list. So check back often for the latest changes.
