Nanoparticulate Drug Delivery Systems, Hardback Book


Focusing on nanoparticulate nanocarriers and recent advances in the field of drug delivery, the volume begins with chapters that provide an informative introduction to polymeric nanoparticles-their general physicochemical features and characteristics, their applications in drug delivery systems, and the challenges involved.

Specific applications are discussed, with attention paid to treatment of particular diseases and disorders and the targeting of specific organs. Part 2 looks at more specific applications and techniques of nanoparticulate nanocarriers for drug delivery, such as the use of magnetic nanoparticles, gold nanoparticles in therapeutics, and superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIONs) for the treatment of cancer.

Part 3 discusses lipid-based nanoparticulates for various applications, including skin care.

The last section of the book explores some of the newer nanoarchitectures, including dendrimers in gene delivery and carbon nanotubes for drug delivery. Together, the insightful research presented here provides valuable information for those involved in this area, including scientists and researchers and faculty and upper-level students, as well as for industry professionals.
