Intracellular Delivery III : Market Entry Barriers of Nanomedicines (Hardcover)
about this item
This book features a special subsection of Nanomedicine, an application of nanotechnology to achieve breakthroughs in healthcare. It exploits the improved and often novel physical, chemical and biological properties of materials only existent at the nanometer scale. As a consequence of small scale, nanosystems in most cases are efficiently taken up by cells and appear to act at the intracellular level. Nanotechnology has the potential to improve diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of diseases, and includes targeted drug delivery and regenerative medicine; it creates new tools and methods that impact significantly existing conservative practices.This volume is a collection of authoritative reviews concentrating on cellular and organelle delivery and targeting, and ways of identifying targets by biochemical and computational means.
