This handbook (55 chapters) provides a comprehensive roadmap of basic research in nanomedicine as well as clinical applications. However, unlike other texts in nanomedicine, it not only highlights current advances in diagnostics and therapeutics but also explores related issues like nomenclature, historical developments, regulatory aspects, nanosimilars and 3D nanofabrication. While bridging the gap between basic biomedical research, engineering, medicine and law, the handbook provides a thorough understanding of nano’s potential to address (i) medical problems from both the patient and health provider's perspective, and (ii) current applications and their potential in a healthcare setting.
• Examines the entire "product wheel" from creation of nanomedical products to final market introduction in a stand-alone, easily accessible volume
• Serves as an essential reference for the novice and expert alike in fields such as medicine, law, biotechnology, pharmaceutical sciences, engineering, biomedicine, policy, future studies, ethics, intellectual property law, licensing, and toxicology
• Addresses critical topics such as ethics, safety and toxicity, environmental health, nanoeconomics, business strategy, licensing, intellectual property, FDA law, EPA law, and governmental policy issues.
