Nanomedicine explores the modification and enhancement of the properties and performances of typical drugs to treat various diseases. Nano-based medicines have advantages in several ways, such as in nanotherapeutics, nanotheranostics, and nanodiagnostics.
Nanomedicine Manufacturing and Applications effectively explores the major manufacturing techniques and applications of nanomaterial-based medicine in the areas of chemotherapy, biochips, insulin pumps, and other treatment methods. This book explains how nanomedicines are developed from nanoparticles as well as their biomedical and other applications related to healthcare.
This book is an important reference source for nanoscientists, biomaterials scientists, and biomedical engineers who want to learn more about how nano-based medicines are made and used.

Key Features

  • Outlines the process of making nanomedicine as well as nanodrug carriers, with a focus on
    nanomedicine for cancer treatment.
  • Explains the formulation and manufacturing process of nanomedicines, showing how to build
    these materials.
  • Demonstrates how nano-based medicines are being used to tackle a range of diseases in a
    way that conventional medicines cannot.
