  • Decribes various types of nanoparticles and how they can be synthesized
  • Summarizes interactions of nanoparticles and different biological systems
  • Reviews ways different physiological and immunological systems respond to nanoparticles
  • Provides guidance on safe use of nanoparticles
  • Includes examples of the medical uses of nanoparticles in drug delivery, cancer diagnosis, therapies for degenerative conditions, and even in cosmetics


Biomedical Application of Nanoparticles explores nanoparticles, their chemical and physicals properties, and how they interact in biological systems with proteins, immune system and targeted cells. Risk assessment of nanoparticles for human is described, including: cellular paradigms, transcriptomics and toxicogenomics. Finally, the applications of nanoparticles in medicine and antioxidant regenerative therapeutics are presented in several chapters with emphasis on how nanoparticles enhance transport of drugs across biological membrane barriers and therefore may enhance drug bioavailability.
