About this book

Nanophytomedicine is a field that involves the application of nanomedicine-based systems to phytotherapy and phytopharmacology. This book assesses the clinical successes and failures of nanophytomedicine and also highlights emerging concepts in this field. The content is divided into three sections, the first of which describes core issues in the pharmaceuticals industry in connection with the successes, failures and prospects of nanophytomedicine. The second section highlights recent advances in phytomedicine formulation development based on nanotechnology approaches, while also discussing a variety of nanocarrier systems for the successful delivery of phytomedicines. Focusing on the clinical perspective, the third section addresses the current clinical status of nanophytomedicine as a single drug therapy or combinatorial drug therapy, pharmacovigilance, pharmacokinetics, drug interactions and toxicological profiles, while also providing concluding remarks on recent experimental findings, and considering ethical issues & regulatory challenges in nanophytomedicine.

Given its scope, the book offers a valuable guide for early career researchers, young scientists, master level students, academics and industrial scientists working in various healthcare fields, e.g. the pharmaceutical and biological sciences, life sciences, biotechnology, biomedical engineering, and nanobiotechnology.
