This new volume focuses on the ever-growing and ever-sophisticated use of nanobiomaterials in drug delivery. There have been significant developments in the delivery of the active pharmaceutical ingredients to target sites, thereby sparing the normal functioning biological systems from damage, and this volume highlights some of the most important developments in the field.
The book first provides an overview of nanobiomaterials and then goes on to report on new developments in drug delivery and nanotechnology, nanobiomaterials as carriers in cancer therapy, and the diverse uses of nanobiomaterials.
Broken into sections, the chapters cover:
- an overview of nanobiomaterials
- drug delivery and nanotechnology
- nanobiomaterials as carriers in cancer therapeutics
- diverse uses of nanobiomaterials
This volume will be a valuable resource on drug delivery for pharmaceutical manufacturers, healthcare personnel, and researchers.
