Researchers and readers in science, medicine, pharmacology and toxicology


Nanomedicine is one of the 21st century’s most promising technologies and there is rising attention in the world toward the development of new highly specific approaches in the diagnostic and therapeutic applications of nanobiotechnology. This field is a multidisciplinary science and carries the science of incomprehensibly small and portable devices closer to reality. Among the different applications of nanobiotechnology in health sciences, nanopharmaceuticals, gene therapy, regenerative medicine, targeted drug delivery, and disease diagnostics are the most important. It explores the application of nanotechnology in the development of safe, effective, and reliable tools to combat various infections. In the field of pharmacology and toxicology, the future of nanobiotechnology is very bright and facilitates precise and selective occlusion within minutes, and will ensure improved health. Nano pharmacology could also prove an outstanding milestone.

The main focus of the book is dedicated to concepts, applications, and perspectives that combine contributions from analytical, bioorganic, and bioinorganic chemistry, molecular and cell biology, and materials science in an attempt to give the reader a feel for the full scope of current and potential future developments. The chapters in this volume clearly emphasize the high degree of interdisciplinary research that forms the backbone of this joint venture of pharmacology/toxicology and nanoscience. Readers will benefit from all this information if they decide to read this book.
