The fast developing field of nanomedicine uses a broad variety of materials to serve as delivery systems for drugs, genes, and diagnostic agents. This book is the first attempt to put under one cover all major available information about these materials, both still on experimental levels and already applied in patients.

The book is Volume 1 of the Pan Stanford Series on Biomedical Nanotechnology that is headed by Vladimir Torchilin and Mansoor Amiji.
