Applications of Nanomaterials in Medical Procedures and Treatments is a primer to the industrial use of nanomaterials. It presents 8 chapters explaining the use of nanomaterials in clinical medicine. Basic to advanced concepts are explained with the guidance of specialists who present the principal techniques and methods to obtain high-performance polymers and composite materials.

The book starts with chapters on new contrast agents that help in molecular imaging, followed by chapters on prosthetics and artificial tissues. The next 3 chapters cover the applications of nanomaterials in the treatment of cancer and eye infections. This includes a chapter on innovative bioceramics with anticancer properties. The concluding chapters focus on biomedical device regulators and processing techniques for advanced materials.

This book is a primary reference book for undergraduate and graduate students as well as professors involved in multidisciplinary research and teaching programs.


Students, teachers and researchers in pharmacology, medicine and biomedical engineering


Frontiers in Nanomedicine Vol. 4, Applications of Nanomaterials in Medical Procedures and Treatments continues describing relevant topics in nanomaterials for biomedical applications and regulations. Contents of chapters 1 to 7 are organized as follows, molecular imaging and contrast agents; tissue engineering; prosthetics and implants; ophthalmic and cancer therapy; and processing techniques. While last chapter 8 completes the book with a motif of international regulations and standards.

Multidisciplinary research is quickly proliferating in modern times. In this context, nanomedicine intertwines the new wave of high-performance devices with standard methods and pharmaceutics to find final options against deadly diseases.

Once again, I expect you can use this book as a guide to delve into the fundamental issues surrounding nanoscience applied to medicine.
