Introduction: Nanoparticles are the particles of nanometer size that are used in various applications while stem cells are pluripotent cells having capacity to proliferate and differentiate in desired manner. Interaction of nanoparticles with stem cells i.e. stem cell nanotechnology has opened the new area of research and application in medical sciences. Objective: In this review we aimed to search the pharmacological aspect of nanoparticles in stem cells. Method: We searched pubmed, medline, google scholar and other online as well as offline data base with key words of nanoparticle, stem cells, nanotechnology to find the information. Articles were further sorted out regarding the availability of content. Only those articles, which were available by open access either abstract or full paper or both were included in the review. Result & Conclusion: We conclude the stem cell nanotechnology is upcoming branch of study in pharmacology. Different pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynmic aspect of nanoparticles as nanodrug has to be explored before using them on wide scale. These data warrant the establishment of new area of studies i.e. Stem Cell Nanophrmaceutics to deal with nanodrugs.
