Summary In recent years, nanoparticles--bionanomaterials with specific physicochemical properties--have gained a great deal of scientific interest owing to their unique structure. Nanoparticle-based drugs are now widely regarded as a safer, more precise, and more effective mode of cancer therapy, considering their ability to enhance drug bioavailability, improve site-specific drug delivery, and protect nontarget tissues from toxic therapeutic drugs. This book compiles and details cutting-edge research in nanomedicine from an interdisciplinary team of international cancer researchers who are currently revolutionizing drug delivery techniques through the development of nanomedicines and nanotheranostics. Edited by Hala Gali-Muhtasib and Racha Chouaib, two prominent cancer researchers, this book will appeal to anyone involved in nanotechnology, cancer therapy, or drug delivery research
