Handbook of Nanomaterials for Cancer Theranostics focuses on recent developments in advanced theranostic nanomedicines from a chemical and biological perspective where the advantages of theranostics are achieved by combining multiple components. The authors explore the pros and cons of theranostic nanomaterials developed in cancer research in the last 15 years, with the different strategies compared and scrutinized. In addition, the book explores how nanomaterials may overcome the regulatory hurdles facing theranostic nanomedicines.
This is an important research reference for postgraduates and researchers in nanomedicine and cancer research who want to learn more on how nanomaterials can help create more effective cancer treatments.
- Highlights the development of smart theranostic nanomaterials to tackle biomedical problems in cancer therapy and diagnostics
- Explores the regulatory hurdles facing theranostic nanomedicine
- Discusses how the use of nanomaterials can help create more effective cancer treatments
