Handbook of Harnessing Biomaterials in Nanomedicine

Preparation, Toxicity and Applications

by Dan Peer

"The nanomedicine revolution has begun. To date, nearly 30 nanotechnology-based products have been approved for clinical use, including liposomal formulations and stealth polymer–drug conjugates. Importantly, the application of nanotechnology to medicine will continue to progressively and fundamentally change the landscape for the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. Dan Peer has done an exceptional job bringing together the world’s leading experts to provide an authoritative compilation covering the essential fundamentals and state-of-the-art approaches. The book includes essential methods for preparing nanomaterials, testing the function, and analyzing their safety with relevance to potential regulatory hurdles that may be encountered. This book will undoubtedly become an essential reference for scientists and technologists who aim to characterize, study, and develop clinically relevant and safe nanomedicines."
