Description

Neurotoxicity of Nanomaterials and Nanomedicine presents an overview of the exciting research in neurotoxicity and nanomaterials. Nanomaterials have been extensively used in medicine, including diagnosis probes, drug carriers, and embedded materials. While some have been approved for clinical use, most nanomaterials are waiting to be transferred from lab to clinic. However, the toxicity is a main barrier that restricts the translation.

This comprehensive book includes chapters on the most commonly used individual nanoparticles, with information on the applications, neurotoxicity, and related mechanisms of each, providing the most in-depth and current information available. The book examines the pathways that nanomaterials enter into, and eliminate, from the brain, along with the strategies that could reduce the neurotoxicity of nanomaterials.

Providing a background to the subject, detailed information, and ideas for future directions in research, the book is essential for students and researchers in toxicology, and for those in medicine, neurology, pharmacology, pharmaceutical science, and materials science who are researching nanomaterials.

Key Features

  • Presents a thorough discussion of the most common nanoparticles in the brain and their neurotoxicology
  • Includes the most common nanoparticles, their applications, and mechanisms
  • Provides one of the first books to focus on nanomedicine and neurotoxicity

Readership

Postgraduate students and researchers in toxicology as well as pharmaceutical science, pharmacology, medicine and material science. Researchers in neurotoxicology, nanotoxicology, nanomedicine, neuroscience, and nanotechnology: will also be of use in industrial settings such as the medical, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, and coating industries

About the Editor

Xinguo Jiang

Prof. Xinguo Jiang obtained B. S. in Pharmacy from Shanghai First Medical College in July 1982. Then he worked in the Department of Pharmaceutics in Fudan University (original Shanghai First Medical College) since Oct 1986. During Jan and Jul in 1996, he was a guest professor in the Department of Pharmacy in Nagasaki University (Japan). He also served as the vice-editor for Chinese Journal of Clinical Pharmacy and editorial board member for other eight journals including Acta Pharmaceutica Sinica and Chinese Pharmaceutical Journal. Jiang’s research interests focus on the development of novel drug delivery system especially for brain-targeting drug delivery. Served as the Principal Scientist, Prof. Jiang received a research grant form State Plan for Development of Basic Research in Key Areas. He also has won eight research grants from National Natural Science Foundation of China and five research grants from Shanghai government. He has accomplished over 70 R&D projects on the novel drug delivery systems under cooperation with pharmaceutical companies. Jiang has published over 120 research papers in peer-reviewed journals and fifteen patents. And he has developed three marked formulations. Served as guest editor, he edited two theme issues for Pharmaceutical Research and Current Pharmaceutical Biotechnology. He also wrote several book chapters and edited three books (in Chinese).
