Preface

The last decade has witnessed a tremendous change in the way disease therapy has been impacted by nanotechnology. It has indeed birthed and nurtured a newer branch of advanced therapy and diagnostics vis a vis “nanomedicine” . The uniqueness and propensity of adapting itself to diagnosis and treatment of plethora of diseases makes “nanomedicine” a key area of pharmaceutical research. Although at its nascent stage “the nanomedicine approaches as an intervention for cardiac diseases”, is fast attracting the attention of researchers and practitioners alike. Cardiac diseases are often associated with myriad complications during the lifetime of a patient and continue to remain the cause of frequent deaths worldwide. The disease segment is still on a lookout of well-equipped treatment tools and is poised to explore nanomedicine armamentarium wherein, cardiovascular complications could be diagnosed at the molecular level and its treatment is delivered at the cellular level. This, precisely would make a fit case for early detection and diagnosis followed by quicker remedy for the cardiac ailments. This would indeed be a welcome step as most cardiac diseases often reduce the window of survival time for the patients.

The book entitled “Nanomedicinal approaches for cardiovascular disease” by Dr. Fahima Dilnawaz and Dr. Zeenat Iqbal illustrates the application of nanomedicine and nanotechnology in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. This book indeed is a humble attempt to present the various approaches of nanomedicine in cardiovascular ailments to the broad readership, including academicians, researchers, scholars and clinicians. The authors have made concerted efforts towards inviting various reputed contributors who have been working in the domain of nanomedicine for quite some time.

This book is divided into separate sections such as: Section 1: Introduction to cardiovascular diseases and need of nanomedicine and regenerative nanomedicine: Nanomedicine aspects in cardiovascular diseases, Role of Nanomedicine in the diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases, Nanotechnology based molecular imaging in cardiovascular disease, Nanocarriers for therapeutics delivery of cardiovascular diseases, Nanocarriers for theranostics delivery of cardiovascular diseases, Nanocarriers for biologicals delivery to cardiovascular delivery and Ethics and regulations for cardiovascular diseases. Section 2: Biomaterials for cardiac regeneration, Biomimetic materials design for cardiac tissue regeneration, Nanotechnology based direct cardiac reprogramming for cardiac regeneration, Smart nanomaterials for cardiac regeneration therapy, Stem cell engineering ability to promote cardiac regenerative activity.

Each section gives a plethora of novel information on a particular field. Summarily, the book is a collection of quality information on various applications of nanomedicine that can be applied for the successful treatment of cardiovascular diseases. The lucid textual and pictorial presentation of the various sections and chapters is primarily in simple language that will support easy dissemination of knowledge.

The authors are hopeful that the collaborative efforts invested in the writing of this book on a very dedicated area of nanomedicine in cardiac diseases would attract good readership.
