Multifunctional Theranostic Nanomedicines in Cancer focuses on new trends, applications, and the significance of novel multifunctional nanotheranostics in cancer imaging for diagnosis and treatment. This book is divided into three parts that cover materials, therapies and the targeting of specific cancers. Sections cover polymer-based therapies, lipid-based therapies, inorganic particle-based therapies, photo-related therapies, radiotherapies, chemotherapies and surgeries. This book presents an indispensable guide for researchers in academia, industry and clinical settings, but it is also ideal for postgraduate students and formulation scientists working on cancer.
