Drug delivery system comprising gelatine nano-particles for slowly releasing hardly-water soluble substances and its preparation method

The present invention is about preparing gelatin nanoparticles having a size of about 200 nm are supported or not supported with a hardly-water soluble drug without a homogenizer by constructing o/w/o or w/o systems, thereby relatively prolonging the circulation time within the human body as compared to a water-repellent particle because it is free from the immune system, and enhancing epr (enhanced permeability and retention) effects. In this case, the hardly-water soluble drug includes hardly soluble anticancer agents such as paclitaxel, coenzyme q10, ursodexoychlic acid, ilaprazole or imatinib mesylate.
