Summary

This forward-looking book focuses on the recent advances in nanomedicine and drug delivery. It outlines the extraordinary new tools that have become available in nanomedicine and presents an integrated set of perspectives that describe where we are now and where we should be headed to put nanomedicine devices into applications as quickly as possible, while also considering the possible dangers of nanomedicine.

The book considers the full range of nanomedicinal applications that employ molecular nanotechnology inside the human body, from the perspective of a future practitioner in an era of widely available nanomedicine.

Written by some of the most innnovative minds in medicine and engineering, this unique volume will help professionals understand cutting-edge and futuristic areas of research that can have tremendous payoff in terms of improving human health. Readers will find insightful discussions of nanostructured intelligent materials and devices that are considered technically feasible and which have a high potential to produce advances in medicine in the near future.

Topics include:

  • Health benefits of phytochemicals and the application of colloidal delivery systems
  • Study of non-covalent attachment of recombinant targeting proteins to polymer-modified Adenoviral gene delivery vectors
  • The role of nanoparticles as adjuvants for mucosal vaccine delivery
  • Poly(amido-amine)s as delivery styems for biologically active substances
  • Antimicrobial activity of silver nanoparticles
  • Nanomedicine in the use of cancer treatment
  • Dendrimers, capsules based on lipid vesicles for drug delivery
  • Many other recent achievements
