Contents Notes
The need for new perspectives in medicine -- Nanomedicine : single-cell medicine -- Targeted drug delivery -- Drug delivery cell entry mechanisms -- Nanomaterial cores for non-invasive imaging -- Attaching biomolecules to nanoparticles -- Characterizing nanoparticles -- Nanomedicine drug dosing -- Nanodelivery of therapeutic genes -- Assessing nanomedical therapies at the single-cell level -- Nanotoxicity at the single-cell level -- Designing nanodelivery for in systems for in-vivo use -- Designing and testing nanomedical devices -- Quality assurance and regulatory issues of nanomedicine for pharmaceutical industry. "The first introductory book on the subject, this book will provide a complete grounding to this pioneering field for students and professionals across biomedical engineering, biology and medicine. It features a comprehensive overview of original work in this revolutionary field. Topics discussed include drug delivery, cell-material interaction and gene therapy, accompanied by real-world examples and over 100 illustrations. The book teaches readers how to design and test their own nanomedical systems for real-world applications in biomedical engineering, medicine and pharmacy"--
