Summary

The enormous advances in nanomedicine in the past decade have necessitated a growing need for an authoritative and comprehensive reference that can be relied upon by scientists, clinicians, students, and policy makers alike. Handbook of Clinical Nanomedicine: From Bench to Bedside is designed to offer a global perspective on the wonders of nanomedicine.

The handbook aims to provide a broad survey of various interconnected topics pertaining to nanomedicine. It is intended to be a stand-alone, easily accessible volume that examines the entire "product wheel" from creation of nanomedical products to final market introduction, all accomplished in a user-friendly format. Specifically, everything from bio-nanomaterials and nanodevices from the R&D stage to patent protection, clinical regulatory aspects, and eventual commercialization is encompassed in this book. In addition to highlighting cutting-edge technologies, the book addresses critical topics such as ethics, safety and toxicity, environmental health, nanoeconomics, business strategy, licensing, intellectual property, FDA law, EPA law, and governmental policy issues. With contributions from international experts, the diverse team of editors has compiled a book that provides a unified perspective to these varied topics. While many books focus on nanomedicine, nanotechnology, or nanoscience, none provides the medical applications of nanotechnology with both a clinical and a business angle. Furthermore, most of the currently available books on the market fail to highlight the truly global nature of nanomedicine.

The handbook provides a comprehensive road map of basic research in nanomedicine as well as clinical applications and commercialization activities. It is essential reading for the novice and expert alike in fields such as medicine, law, biotechnology, pharmaceutical sciences, engineering, biomedicine, policy, future studies, ethics, intellectual property law, licensing, and toxicology. While bridging the gap between basic biomedical research, engineering, and medicine, the handbook provides an understanding of nanotechnology’s use to solve medical problems; current applications and their potential; regulatory environment and policy issues; and intellectual property, licensing, and business activities.

The range of topics covered as well as the international selection of authors is truly impressive. Since the rapidly evolving field of nanomedicine is very diverse and covers physical, chemical, biological, and engineering aspects, the range of the contributing authors accurately reflects this. The book’s multidisciplinary approach and an in-depth focus on nanomedicine, pharmaceutical sciences, materials science, biomedical engineering, and biotechnology will attract a global audience. In short, this book promises to be a standard reference text in this expansive and interdisciplinary field. It is a timely addition to the literature on nanosciences and will undoubtedly serve as a catalyst to stimulate interest in this rapidly growing field.
