Nanotechnology and Drug Delivery, Volume One : Nanoplatforms in Drug Delivery Hardback

Edited by Dr. Jose L. Arias


Pharmacotherapy is often limited by the inefficient activity and severe toxicity of drug molecules.

Nanotechnology offers a revolutionary and definitive approach for the efficient delivery of drug molecules to non-healthy tissues and cells.

This first volume of a series of two volumes analyzes the basics in the development of drug-loaded nanoplatforms, the so-called nanomedicines.

Special attention is given to physicochemical engineering, pharmacokinetics, biocompatibility and biodegradability, representative nanoplatforms (based on lipids, polymers, cyclodextrins, metals, carbon, silica, iron oxides, etc.), and advanced nano-engineering strategies for passive, ligand-mediated, and/or stimuli-sensitive drug delivery and release.
