Nano-medicine can be defined as a complex, multi-disciplinary branch of medicine, in which nano-technologies, molecular biotechnologies, and other nano-sciences are applied at every step of disease management, from diagnosis (nano-diagnostics) to treatment (nano-therapeutics), prognosis, and monitoring of biological parameters and biomarkers. Nano-medicine potentially enables physicians to detect a disorder early, before its clinical manifestations, as well as to provide drugs in a rational, precise, and targeted way, thereby minimizing the risk of the occurrence of side-effects as much as possible. Furthermore, different sub-specialties such as nano-neurosurgery, nano-otorhinolaryngology, nano-dentistry, nano-ophthalmology, nano-neurology, nano-cardiology, nano-orthopedics, nano-infectivology, and nano-oncology are emerging within nano-medicine. Nano-medicine is a relatively young discipline, which is increasingly and exponentially growing, characterized by emerging ethical issues and implications. Therefore, the purpose of this Special Issue is to gather contributions, reflecting the various aspects of nano-medicine, either from a theoretical, applied, or translational standpoint, including regulatory aspects.
