One Line Description
A unique book that details the theranostic approach of blending therapeutics
and disagnostics to deliver individualized medicine at the nanoscale.

Scientists, researchers, clinicians, and biotechnologists in Advanced Theranostic Materials research; biomedical industrial sectors working on system biology, diagnostics, imaging, image-guided therapy employing state-of-the-art techniques; and PhD, master and under graduate level courses on therapeutics, biosensors, and translational medicine and personalized medicine.

Theranostics is the combination of therapeutics and diagnostics and spans the cross-disciplinary fields of chemistry, biol¬ogy, materials science and engineering, and plays a vital role in the individualized medical approach and technology. With burgeoning research on a global scale over the past decade, an enormous assortment of theranostic modules have been formulated and optimized for potential clinical trial.
Advanced Theranostic Materials offers comprehensive chapters on the current advances in the design and optimization of biocompatible material and technologies which produce novel and smart ‘theranostic’ modules for next-generation applications. The concept of design with precise functions and effective self-reporting is of great interest and has massive prospective application in personalized medicine.
Written by an eminent group of scientists, the book is divided into 3 sections: System Biology and Translational Medicine; Imaging and Therapeutics; and Diagnostics and Featured Prognostics. Some of the specific subjects covered include:
• Nanocapsules in Biomedicine • Cardiovascular Nanomedicine • Construction of Functional DNA Nanostructures • Nanoparticles and Cancer Treatment • Abberant Signaling Pathways • Self-Directed Assembly of Nanoparticles • Glucose Biosensores Based on Nanomaterials • Chitosan-based Polymeric Network Systems for Drug Release
