Research and Markets(www.researchandmarkets.com/research/aed41c/understanding_nano) has announced the addition of the "Understanding Nanomedicine: An Introductory Textbook" book to their offering.
The scientific field of nanotechnology is rapidly evolving and will soon significantly impact virtually every aspect of our lives. While its greatest effect has been on the materials, semiconductor, and instrumentation industries, nanotechnology's promise in bettering the health of human beings is showing significant signs of maturation. This book comprehensively addresses the latest findings and discoveries in the area of nanomedicine. It initially covers the evolution of nanotechnology in general from a historical perspective followed by detailed focusing on all the major areas of medicine for which nanotechnology has the potential to make a transformational impact. This is backed up by a thorough review of published research representing some of the most exciting findings in medical science today. Major areas of concentration include, but are not limited to, targeted nanoparticles for cancer treatment, clinical neuroscience, nanofibers for tissue engineering, nanoparticle-mediated drug delivery, and diagnostics. The text finishes with a look into the future with a chapter dedicated to intriguing possibilities in nanomedicine backed up by real data and research. In addition, an entire chapter is dedicated to worldwide governmental regulatory impact on nanomedicine.
