Overview

The Series
Nanotechnologies for the Life Sciences (NtLS) is the first comprehensive source covering the convergence of materials and life sciences on the nanoscale, a wide field of research which brings together the main technology drive of the 21st century and existing, multibillion dollar markets.

Written by international experts describing the various facets of nanofabrication, the ten volumes of NtLS provide the underlying nanotechnologies for the design, creation and characterization of medical, biological and cybernetic applications. Each volume addresses in detail one particular facet of the field.

Tailor-made nanomaterials find widespread new opportunities in diagnostic and monitoring microdevices, microsurgery tools and instruments, tissue engineering, drug delivery or artificial organs, and many more. Making information available from all kinds of specialized sources throughout the disciplines involved, NtLS is essential reading for all scientists working in this field from medicine and biology through chemistry, materials science and physics to engineering.

This Volume
Volume 6 focuses on the therapy aspects of the fight against cancer. Different therapeutic strategies and technologies are surveyed and compared in which nanoparticles and nanomaterials play different roles such as the active anticancer agent, its delivery system or container, or as active material for destructive energy absorption in the cancer tissue. Controlled release and highly targeted delivery are focal topics throughout the book.
Diagnostic and diagnostic-therapeutic aspects are covered in volume 7.
