The cancer research world is looking forward to bionanotechnology to find the best solutions for a complete cure from cancer, which is not possible with the current established treatment methods. The past decade of research on nano imaging and drug delivery in cancer has witnessed many interesting papers and reviews, but there has not been a concise resource that discusses all fields related to nano cancer research in diagnosis and drug delivery. This book fills this gap and presents the latest bionano research in cancer, focusing on nanodiagnostics and nanotherapy.
The book is organized into two sections. The section on nanodiagnostics focuses on topics such as diagnostic methods in cancer-related therapy and use of radiolabeled nanoparticles, magnetic nanoparticles, acoustically reflective nanoparticles, X-ray computed tomography, and optical nanoprobes for diagnosis. The section on nanotherapy focuses on nanomaterials in chemotherapy, magnetic nanoparticles for hyperthermia against cancer, phototherapy, nanotechnology-mediated radiation therapy, nanoparticle-mediated small-RNA deliveries for molecular therapies, and theranostics. The book will serve as the gateway to enter the beautiful and elegant field of bionanoscience, which is considered the last hope for the fight against cancer and will be a highly useful resource for the students, researchers, teachers, and curious readers working in this field or related fields.
