Nanotechnology Principles in Drug Targeting and Diagnosis focuses on the nanotechnology principles and mechanisms involved in drug targeting, nano carriers and target interactions associated with particular diseases. The book addresses how phytotherapeutics are effective against solid tumors and how they can be used in designing targeted delivery systems. Also addressed is the use of macrophages as the biomimetic carrier for targeting drugs to different organs. Sections cover the nanotechnology-based concepts in drug targeting, strategies for drug targeting, ways to identify drug carrier-target interaction, the concept of an artificial neural network in identifying drug-target interaction, and more.

The book's final section concentrates on the role of nanotechnology in medical diagnosis, throwing light on nanoscale sensors for the diagnosis of viruses in the bloodstream and biomarkers indicating various cancers. This is an important reference source for materials scientists and pharmaceutical scientists who want to understand how nanotechnology plays an important role in creating more efficient drug targeting and delivery systems.
