Nanomedicine is defined as application of nanotechnology for treatment, monitoring, prevention, and control of biological diseases. To apply nanomedicine, the precise targets (cells and/or receptors) specific to the clinical disease should be identified and the suitable nanoparticles for delivery system to minimize the side effects of the original drug should be selected. One of these precise targets are macrophages, endothelial, dendritic as well as tumor cells. The main aim of the present review is to throw light on possible nanotechnology applications in parasitic diseases focusing on three main aspects: diagnosis, treatment, and vaccination.
