Foreword

It is my immense pleasure to write the foreword to this book. The book deals with various aspects of nanotechnology based application for the treatment of cardiovascular disease.

Across the globe cardiac diseases remain the major cause of mortality and morbidity despite current pharmacological advancements, however, a complete cure for the disease has not been accomplished. In cardiac therapy nanotechnology-based therapeutic application has illustrated remarkable progress. Immense usefulness of nanotechnological application towards therapy, it is highly anticipated that nanomedicine may fill the huge gap by initializing the new avenues to meet the existing therapeutic demands of cardiovascular diseases. And it may provide a subtle solution with better prognoses along with a reduced side effect profile.

This abreast book is quite informative as it deals with the understanding of the cardiovascular disease and current progression of nanotechnological mode for the holistic approach of the therapeutic improvement. This book gives the surfeit information about various nanocarriers, biomaterials for cardiac tissue regeneration which is highly beneficial for the students, academicians and clinicians. The simple language with pictorial illustration of the book will surely help for the upgraded understanding of the subject.

I am convinced that my colleagues Dr. Fahima Dilnawaz and Dr. Zeenat Iqbal have done a great, focused and detailed job in compiling and editing this cutting edge and comprehensive book on nanomedicine and cardiovascular disorders written by subject experts. I wish this extraordinary book to entice extensive readership, and I hope the readers will thoroughly enjoy the assortment of recent scientific facts as much as I did!

FOREWORD 2

It is a pleasure to write the foreword to this book. It presents a comprehensive review of various aspects of nanotechnology in the treatment, drug delivery and amelioration of cardiovascular disease.

Up till now, cardiac diseases remain the major cause of mortality and morbidity across the globe and despite the recent therapeutics’ options and pharmacological advancements, a complete cure for cardiac diseases has not yet been achieved. However, in recent years, a tremendous explosion has been seen in the advancement of nanotechnology, where nanomedicine has brought a remarkable improvement in cardiac therapy. And it is expected that nanomedicine will fill the remaining gap by opening new frontiers for inventing newer therapies and addressing the unmet needs of cardiovascular diseases.

This up-to-date book incorporates both the underlying science of cardiovascular diseases and the advancements in the field of nanotechnology in such a balanced fashion that led to the holistic development in the next generation of disease treatment. From nanocarriers to biomaterials for cardiac tissue regeneration, this book gives a plethora of information that will be definitely beneficial for the students and clinicians. Also, simple language and pictorial presentations of the various concepts will help in the better dissemination of knowledge and hence a better understanding of the book.

I am convinced that Dr. Fahima Dilnawaz and Dr. Zeenat Iqbal have done a great, focused and detailed job in compiling and editing this cutting edge and comprehensive book on nanomedicine and cardiovascular disorders, written by subject matter experts from academia. I wish this extraordinary book attracts a broad readership and I hope the readers will enjoy this collection of scientific facts as much as I did.
