Poor aqueous solubility is one of the key concerns of the majority of new drug molecules. One of the important problems associated with such drugs is that they often lead to low bioavailability. Researchers have used various techniques, but little success has been achieved due to poor stability and industrial viability, including technique cost. Of the numerous techniques, nanosuspensions (NSs) have drawn interest in improving solubility. NSs are dispersions of nanosized drug particles stabilized with the aid of appropriate agents. Stabilizers for NSs are generally recognized as safe (GRAS) excipients that can be chosen from a number of surfactants and/or polymers to food proteins. The commonly used techniques for preparation of NSs including top-down and bottom-up methods, along with new fabrication techniques based on supercritical (SC) fluids, are reviewed. This review also includes preparatory techniques, characterization, potential applications, and recent advancements in the field of NSs.
