about this item

Neurotoxicity of Nanomaterials and Nanomedicine presents an overview of the exciting research in neurotoxicity and nanomaterials. Nanomaterials have been extensively used in medicine, including diagnosis probes, drug carriers, and embedded materials. While some have been approved for clinical use, most nanomaterials are waiting to be transferred from lab to clinic. However, the toxicity is a main barrier that restricts the translation. This comprehensive book includes chapters on the most commonly used individual nanoparticles with information on the applications, neurotoxicity, and related mechanisms of each, providing the most in-depth and current information available. The book examines the pathways that nanomaterials enter into and eliminate from the brain as well as the strategies that could reduce the neurotoxicity of nanomaterials. Providing a background to the subject, detailed information, and ideas for future directions for research, Neurotoxicity of Nanomaterials and Nanomedicine is an essential book for students and researchers in toxicology as well as those in medicine, neurology, pharmacology, pharmaceutical science, and material science who are researching nanomaterials.

  • Provides an understanding of the most common nanoparticles in the brain and their neurotoxicology
  • Includes the most common nanoparticles, their applications, and mechanisms
  • One of the first books to focus on nanomedicine and neurotoxicity
