"Nanotherapeutics: Drug Delivery Concepts in Nanoscience" to their offering.

Research and Markets: Nanotherapeutics: Drug Delivery Concepts in Nanoscience

Posted on October 15th, 2009

An important and exciting aspect in the newly developing field of nanomedicine
is the use of nanoparticle drug delivery systems allowing for innovative
therapeutic approaches. Due to their small size, these drug delivery systems are
promising tools in therapeutic approaches such as selective or targeted drug
delivery towards a specific tissue or organ, enhanced drug transport across
biological barriers, and intracellular drug delivery.

This timely book provides an overview of possible therapeutic applications. The
first part of the book highlights general properties of and phenomena observed
with nanoparticles, and the subsequent consequences for applications in drug
delivery. The second part focuses on the therapeutic approaches that are
possible through the use of nanoparticles, with each chapter discussing a
specific disease (e.g. diabetes, cancer, inflammation, etc.) and the relevant
therapeutic approaches based on the design of nanoparticulate drug delivery
systems. Written in a concise manner, readers will gain an insight into the
basics of nanoparticle preparation as well as a more detailed account of what is
therapeutically feasible by using nanoparticle approaches.
