Handbook of harnessing biomaterials in nanomedicine: preparation, toxicity, and applications /

Dan Peer (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review

Abstract

This book concentrates on the use of biomaterials in nanomedicine. The areas of focus include drug delivery by polymers , lipids and carbohydrates for the delivery of small molecules, RNA interference, and proteins; the use of nano-proteins such as antibodies and peptides as targeting agents for therapeutics and diagnosis; The use of nanocarrier-based biomaterials for manipulation of stem cells; different aspects of toxicity of nanocarriers (the immune response, liver toxicity, and many more); and success stories of biomaterials that have reached the clinics. The book comprises theoretical and
