Evidence from the scientific and medical communities has demonstrated the potential impact of nanotechnology/biotechnology and nanomedicine on the improved management of cancer and other disorders, in terms of early diagnosis and targeted therapy, leading to significant progress in accelerating precision medicine applications. The utilization of nanobiotechnology for the development of novel targeted nano-carrier systems has the potential to offer improved biomedicines (small molecule, peptide, and genes) delivery through improved pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and safety profiles. Targeted delivery of drug-incorporated nanoparticles, through conjugation of tumor-specific cell surface markers, such as tumor-specific antibodies or ligands, could enhance the efficacy and safety of the anti-cancer drug. Additionally, multifunctional characteristics of the Nano-carrier system would allow for simultaneous imaging of various types of cancers/microenvironment, targeted drug delivery (Therapeutics) along with monitoring (Thera nostics).
The scope of this Special Issue is to cover recent progress in nanotechnology/biotechnology as it relates to nanomedicine, targeted delivery of medicines and biomedicines, diagnostics. A key aim is to bring latest advances of various nanomedicine approaches for the detection and treatment of various types of organ specific diseases, vascular targeting, vaccine development, and the overall impact of Nanomedicine on advancing precision medicines. Additionally, this issue aims to cover nano nutraceuticals, nano cosmetics using single or combination of various bioactive compounds derived from natural products and impact on diseases prevention.
