Targeted Nanomedicine for Breast Cancer Therapy provides a compilation of treatment approaches for breast cancer, including conventional receptor targeting methods and novel strategies like stimuli responsive methods and tumor micro-environment responsive strategies. This book compiles the most important information on the state-of-the-art therapeutics, including breast cancer biomarkers and design principles of bio-responsive nanosystems. Presented in two parts, sections cover basic and receptor mediated targeting approaches and examine tumor microenvironment mediated approaches. This is a useful book for pharmaceutical scientists and basic and clinical scientists working in the research area of breast cancer and drug discovery both from academics and industry.Worldwide, breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, however, breast cancer therapy is always challenging. This book aims to help researchers remain updated on the most targeted nanomedicine research available.

Key Features

  • Highlights promising breast cancer targets to help design nanomedicines and stimuli-triggered methods for cancer imaging and treatments
