This book covers current nanotechnology-based nanotherapeutics involving gold nanoparticles, colloids, gels, magnetic nanoparticles, radiofrequency, gene therapy, biological particles, and the intermolecular interactions associated with nanoparticle based cancer therapy in vivo. Different cancer types and locations are considered alongside the corresponding treatment types, and the use of imaging technologies and animal models are also explored. Both scientific and clinical aspects are considered by authors coming from both fields, with the authors using their backgrounds from different disciplines to make the connection between cancer and effective drug delivery and therapeutic strategies.
