Description

Drug Delivery Nanosystems for Biomedical Application reviews some of the most challenging nanosystems with different routes of delivery that are useful for specific drugs, from both efficacy and bioavailability points-of-view. The chapters explore how this area is developing, the present state of the field, and future developments, in particular, inorganic, metallic, polymeric, composite and lipid nanosystems and their possible evolution to clinical applications. The book is a valuable research reference for both researchers and industrial partners who are not only interested in learning about this area, but also want to gain insights on how to move towards translational research.
