Applications of Targeted Nano-Drugs and Delivery Systems: Nanoscience and Nanotechnology in Drug Delivery explores the applications of Nano-drugs and their delivery systems, investigating the role they can play in key body systems and major diseases. The book explores how nanotechnology can be deployed in developing new drug delivery systems and how they enable pharmaceutical companies to reformulate existing drugs on the market, thereby extending the lifetime of products and enhancing performance by increasing effectiveness, safety and patient adherence, and ultimately reducing healthcare cost. Reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of the subject matter, this book includes contributions by experts from different fields.
Readers will find a reference and practical source of guidance for researchers, students and scientists working in the fields of nanotechnology, materials science, and technology and biomedical science.
Enables readers from different fields to access recent research and protocols across traditional boundariesFocuses on protocols and techniques, as well as the knowledge base of the field, thus enabling those in R&D to learn about, and successfully deploy, cutting-edge techniquesExplores the applications of Nano-drugs and their delivery systems, investigating the role they can play in key body systems and major disease types
