About this book

Focusing on the application of nanotechnology in pharmaceutical technology the editors seek to integrate the two in order to obtain innovative products and solutions in pharmacology. Interdisciplinary in content it is of interest to those who are involved in the development of nanoproducts including nanotechnologists, microbiologists, biotechnologists pharmacologists and clinicians. Recent studies are presented that include the biosynthesis of nanoparticles focusing on antimicrobials; nanomaterial-based formulations that treat cancer, infections, skin disorders and wounds;nanomaterials in eye diseases and toxicity and safety issues. It demonstrates the crucial role this plays in tackling multi-drug resistant threats.
