Nanomedicines Manufacturing and Applications explores the major manufacturing techniques and applications of nanomaterials-based medicines in the fields of chemotherapy, biochips, insulin pumps, and other treatment types. This book explains how nanomedicines are developed from nanoparticles, along with their biomedical applications relating 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 and nano-drug carriers, with a particular 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
