Design of Nanostructures for Theranostics Applications (Pharmaceutical Nanotechnology) 1st Edition
Design of Nanostructures for Theranostics Applications focuses on the theranostics applications of nanostructures. In particular, multifunctional nanoparticles for diagnostics and treatment of different diseases, including those relating to the blood-brain barrier, are discussed in detail. Chapters explore different type of nanostructures, covering design, fabrication, functionalization and optimization, helping readers obtain the desired properties. Written by a diverse range of international academics, this book is a valuable reference resource for those working in both nanoscience and the pharmaceutical industry.
- Explores how the design of a range of nanomaterials make them effective theranostic agents, including multifunctional core-shell nanostructures, mesoporous silica nanoparticles, and quantum dots
- Shows how nanomaterials are used effectively for a range of diseases, including breast cancer, prostate cancer and neurological disorders
- Assesses the pros and cons of using different nanomaterials for different types of treatment
