Description

Nanotechnology-based Targeted Drug Delivery Systems for Lung Cancer is an indispensable resource that will help pharmaceutical scientists and clinical researchers design and develop novel drug delivery systems and devices for the treatment of lung cancer. As recent breakthroughs in nanomedicine are now making it possible to deliver drugs, genes and therapeutic agents to localized areas of disease to maximize clinical benefit, while also limiting unwanted side effects, this book explores promising approaches for the diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer using cutting-edge nanomedical technologies. Topics discussed include polymeric nanoparticles, solid lipid nanoparticles, liposomes, dendrimers, micelles and nanoemulsions.

Key Features

  • Provides an overview of an array of nanotechnology-based drug delivery systems
  • Examines the design, synthesis and application of different nanocarriers in drug and gene delivery
  • Provides an in-depth understanding of the design of targeted nanotherapeutics and technologies and its implication in various site-specific cancers

Readership

Pharmaceutical scientists, clinical researchers especially cancer researchers, biomedical and biotechnology professionals, graduate students and academic researchers in pharmaceutical science and materials science working in drug delivery and nanotechnology

Prashant Kesharwani

Dr. Prashant Kesharwani is currently working as Assistant Professor, Department of Pharmaceutics, School of Pharmaceutical Education and Research, Jamia Hamdard, New Delhi, India. He received his doctoral degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences from the Dr H.S. Gour University (Sagar, India) with Prof N.K Jain’s group. He is a recipient of several internationally acclaimed awards viz “Ramanujan Fellowship, DST, India-2017”, “Excellence Research Award-2014”, “Young Innovator Award (Gold medal)-2012”, “International Travel Award/Grant from DST (New Delhi), and INSA (CCSTDS, Chennai)-2012”. He has received ICMR Senior Research Fellowship (in PhD) and AICTE Junior Research Fellowship (in M. Pharm.). After his doctorate, he worked as postdoctoral fellows in the Wayne State University, Detroit (Michigan, USA). Dr. Kesharwani subsequently joined the School of Pharmacy, International Medical University (Malaysia) as lecturer in Pharmaceutical Technology. Subsequently he joined Central Drug Research Institute (CDRI), Lucknow as Ramanujan Fellow. An overarching goal of his current research is the development of nano-engineered drug delivery systems for cancer through with prime focus on dendrimer and polymeric nanomicelles mediated drug delivery systems. Dr. Kesharwani is a co-author on more than 120 publications in high impact factor international journals and 4 international books with total citations of more than 3300 (h index is 27 and i-10 index is 65 as per Google Scholar).
