Abstract:  Nanotechnology has immense potential for the development of more precise and effective methods for disease diagnosis and treatment in plants and animals. The pan industrial nature of this technology continues to attract all stakeholders involved in issues of diseases management in agriculture. Current investments using nanotechnology in disease diagnostics and drug delivery in India are on the rise. If these are to be profitable, it is essential that transfer processes of nanotechnologies in this sector against the patent portfolios are well understood for developing sound policies and for commercialization. The objective of the present study is to assess the trend of patents of this multifaceted technology and its applications in this sector from the databases such as EPO, USPTO, Delphion and Micropatent. Patent analysis includes bibliographic analysis of the patent timeline such as publication year and priority year, country, main IPC and assignee of the patents and technological analysis of nanoresearch areas and their potential applications in disease management. The study illustrates the potential of patents as indicators of technology to develop a framework for knowledge mapping.
