Nanomedicines for Breast Cancer Theranostics addresses the translational aspects and clinical perspectives of breast cancer nanomedicine from a multidisciplinary perspective. The book summarizes research efforts at the preclinical and clinical stage of nanostructures and nanomedicine for dealing with the important challenge of nanomedicine translation in breast cancer theranostics. This book is an important resource for those working in both academia and industry, focusing on hot topics in biomaterials, biomedical engineering, drug delivery and oncology.

Key Features

  • Shows how the discovery of new nanomedicines is leading directly to an increase in the early-stage diagnosis of breast cancer
  • Includes coverage of breast cancer nanomedicine standardization and characterization, highlighting newly developed treatments, diagnostics and treatment monitoring tools
  • Explains why the design of nanobiomaterials make them effective drug carriers when treating breast cancer
