Nanotechnology has revolutionized cancer diagnosis and therapy through targeted drug delivery. Advances in protein engineering and materials science have led to the development of nanocarriers (NCs), which have helped overcome the challenges faced during conventional cancer treatment. These nanocarriers serve as an efficient transport module for drugs. Nano-drug delivery has emerged as a promising technology that results in early detection and better treatment of various cancers. The approved nanoparticles currently used in cancer treatment strategies include liposomes, dendrimers, polyplexes, solid lipid nano-carriers, etc. These nanocarriers shall provide a quick, safe, and cost-effective method in cancer therapy and management.

This book contains thirteen chapters focusing on the treatment of various cancers, i.e., lung, breast, cervical, ovarian, colon, prostate, head and neck, etc., through nanocarrier drugs. The chapters include reviews on a wide variety of advanced data from existing and ongoing clinical research and major regulatory considerations.

This reference book will greatly benefit undergraduate and postgraduate students, oncologists, pharmacists, and researchers involved in nanomedicine and nano-drug delivery.
