The ability to control the structure of materials allows scientists to accomplish what once appeared impossible before the advent of nanotechnology. It is now possible to generate nanoscopic self-assembled and self-destructive robots for effective utilization in therapeutics, diagnostics, and biomedical implants. Nanoscopic therapeutic systems incorporate therapeutic agents, molecular targeting and diagnostic imaging capabilities and they have emerged as the next generation of multifarious nanomedicine to improve the therapeutic outcome including chemo and translational therapy.
Nanomaterials in Drug Delivery Imaging, and Tissue Engineering, comprises 15 chapters authored by senior scientists, and is one of the first books to cover Nanotheragnostics, which is the new developmental edge of nanomedicine combining both diagnostic and therapeutic elements at the nano level. This large multidisciplinary reference work is has four main parts: Biomedical Nanomaterials; Advanced Nanomedicine; Nanotheragnostics; and Nanoscaffolds Technology.
This groundbreaking volume also covers:
- Multifunctional polymeric nanostructures for therapy and diagnosis
- Metalla-assemblies acting as drug carriers
- Nanomaterials for management of lung disorders and drug delivery
- Responsive polymer-inorganic hybrid nanogels for optical sensing, imaging, and drug delivery
- Core/shell nanoparticles for drug delivery and diagnosis
- Theranostic nanoparticles for cancer imaging and therapy
- Magnetic nanoparticles in tissue regeneration
- Core-sheath fibers for regenerative medicine
