<b>NANOTECHNOLOGY IN MEDICINE</b> <p><b>Discover thorough insights into the toxicology of nanomaterials used in medicine</b> <p>In <i>Nanotechnology in Medicine: Toxicity and Safety, </i>an expert team of nanotechnologists delivers a robust and up-to-date review of current and future applications of nanotechnology in medicine with a special focus on neurodegenerative diseases, cancer, diagnostics, nano-nutraceuticals, dermatology, and gene therapy. The editors offer resources that address nanomaterial safety, which tends to be the greatest hurdle to obtaining the benefits of nanomedicine in healthcare. <p>The book is a one-stop resource for recent and comprehensive information on the toxico logical and safety aspects of nanotechnology used in human health and medicine. It provides readers with cutting-edge techniques for delivering therapeutic agents into targeted cellular compartments, cells, tissues, and organs by using nanoparticulate carriers. The book also offers methodological considerations for toxicity, safety, and risk assessment. <p><i>Nanotechnology in Medicine: Toxicity and Safety</i> also provides readers with: <ul><li>A thorough introduction to the nanotoxicological aspects of nanomedicine, including translational nanomedicine and nanomedicine personalization</li> <li>Comprehensive introductions to nanoparticle toxicity and safety, including selenium nanoparticles and metallic nanoparticles</li> <li>Practical discussions of nanotoxicology and drug delivery, including gene delivery using nanocarriers and the use of nanomaterials for ocular delivery applications</li> <li>In-depth examinations of nanotechnology ethics and the regulatory framework of nanotechnology and medicine</li></ul> <p>Perfect for researchers, post-doctoral candidates, and specialists in the fields of nanotechnology, nanomaterials, and nanocarriers, <i>Nanotechnology in Medicine: Toxicity and Safety</i> will also prove to be an indispensable part of the libraries of nanoengineering, nanomedicine, and biopharmaceutical professionals and nanobiotechnologists.
