About this book

Nanomedicine is clinical medicine with the application of nanobiotechnology, which is currently being used to research the pathomechanism of disease, refine molecular diagnostics, and aid in the discovery, development and delivery of drugs. In The Handbook of Nanomedicine, Prof. Kewal K. Jain distills the voluminous literature relevant to the subject into one concise, comprehensive and easy-to-use guide. Beginning with the basics, the subject is developed to potential clinical applications, many of which are still at an experimental stage. Important components of nanomedicine such as nanodiagnostics and nanopharmaceuticals are covered extensively. As this text is aimed at nonmedical scientists, pharmaceutical personnel, as well as physicians, descriptions of the technology involved and other medical terminology are kept as clear and simple as possible.

In depth and cutting-edge, The Handbook of Nanomedicine informs its readers of the ever-growing field of nanomedicine, destined to play a significant role in the future of healthcare.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This is a broad and in-depth introduction to the field of nanomedicine, where nanobiotechnology meets clinical medicine, providing readers with a useful and informative guide. … Recognizing that the audience for the handbook will consist of readers from a variety of occupations, such as nonmedical scientists and pharmaceutical experts … . The table of contents is very detailed which allows readers to quickly scan the contents of the book. … the author has crafted a very useful and accessible guide to a very difficult subject." (Lisa Ennis, Doody’s Review Service, August, 2008)

"The book consists of 18 chapters that showcase this exciting field to a much broader audience. … Overall, the ‘Handbook of Nanomedicine’ is a good treaty for nonscientists and entry-level students who are interested in this area. … the book is recommended to those who are new to the field. Instructors may consider adopting this book for a general nanotechnology-based course … . Lastly, library patrons will find the book useful as an introductory guide to the field." (Mansoor M. Amiji, ChemMedChem, Issue 3, 2008)
