Nanomedicine - the application of nanomaterials and devices for addressing medical problems - has demonstrated great potential for enabling improved diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring of many serious illnesses, including cancer, cardiovascular and neurological disorders, HIV/AIDS, diabetes, as well as many types of inflammatory and infectious diseases. In this book, the authors take a scientific approach to nanotechnology and nanomaterials applications in medicine, while also explaining the core biological principles for an audience of biomedical engineers, materials scientists, pharmacologists and medical diagnostics technicians. The coverage is structured by major disease groups, offering a practical applications-based focus for scientists, engineers and clinicians alike. The spectrum of medical applications are explored, from diagnostics / imaging and drug delivery to monitoring, therapies and disease prevention. The synthesis of nanomaterials, and their potential health risks (specifically toxicity) are also covered. . Gain an understanding of how nanotechnologies and nanomaterials can be deployed in the fight against the major life-threatening diseases, including cancer, neurological disorders (including Alzheimer's and Parkinson's), cardiovascular diseases and HIV/AIDS. . Discover the latest developments in nanomedicine from therapies and drug delivery to diagnostics and disease prevention. . The authors cover the health risks of nanomaterials as well as their benefits, considering toxicology and potential carcinogens.
