In recent years, nanoparticles—bionanomaterials with specific physicochemical properties—have gained a great deal of scientific interest owing to their unique structure. Nanoparticle-based drugs are now widely regarded as a safer, more precise, and more effective mode of cancer therapy considering their ability to enhance drug bioavailability, improve site-specific drug delivery, and protect nontarget tissues from toxic therapeutic drugs.

This book compiles and details cutting-edge research in nanomedicine from an interdisciplinary team of international cancer researchers, who are currently revolutionizing drug delivery techniques through the development of nanomedicines and nanotheranostics.
