Nanotechnology is a multidisciplinary field covering a large and diverse array of devices and materials in nanometre scale, derived from engineering, physics, chemistry and biology. The field of applied nanotechnology in medicine is growing fast and the application of nanotechnology to therapeutics has led to advances in drug delivery, biomaterials, biomedical devices, intelligent processes and in many other areas of medicine and applied biomedical sciences.
The authors of this volume describe and discuss current technology and the applications of nanoparticles and nanostructures in various aspects of therapeutics and drug delivery. The chapters are completely up-to-date and are written by some of the leading scientists in the field. Topics covered include chronobiology, chronopharmacology and chronotherapeutics, polymeric gene delivery vectors, biohybrid materials, biomimetic systems, hydrogel nanocomposites, star polymers and dendrimers, ionic nanoparticulate systems, nanospheres and nanoparticles. Entire chapters are devoted to specific applications of nanotechnology such as cancer therapy, bone disorders, and diabetes.
