Up to 40 volumes are planned for this concise monograph series, which focuses on the implementation of various engineering principles in the conception, design, development, analysis and operation of biomedical, biotechnological and nanotechnology systems and applications.
ABSTRACT: Nanomaterials have gained immense recognition, particularly in biomacromolecular delivery, owing to their capability of diagnosis, controlled drug release or targeting at molecular, cellular and organ level. The present monograph endeavors to describe the role of nanomaterials in the development of various nanostructured, biomacromolecular delivery systems. This volume presents a discussion on various physicochemical properties, preparation techniques and analytical tools for characterizing these systems. The mechanisms of cellular internalization of nanomaterial based targeted systems is also embarked upon. Various challenges posed during the development, scale up and large-scale production is discussed. A brief overview pertaining to the regulatory requirements and commercialization of these systems is also included. Taking lead from various successful case studies, the monograph provides a bird’s eye view on the current advances in the field of nanomaterial based biomacromolecular delivery. Concisely, this volume acts as a ready reckoner for drug delivery scientists working in this area.
