Special Issue Information
The use of nanomedicines, i.e., nanotechnology applied to medicine for diagnosis and treatment of different diseases, has attracted great interest in recent years, and not solely for cancer therapy.
Several nanosized materials have been widely investigated for this purpose, exploiting their intrinsic unique properties, although the exact mechanism of action is often subject to debate. Additionally, their activity has been optimized through the addition of different coatings, e.g., to improve chemical stability and stealth properties, or even the presence of targeting agents, which reduce off-targets while achieving powerful “smart” nanoplatforms for the early detection, treatment and possibly resolution of diseases.
This Special Issue aims to collect research or review articles that focus on the investigation of nanomaterials, e.g., nanoparticles, with particular emphasis on exploring the study of innovative solutions to enhance nanoparticle properties and develop new effective diagnostic, therapeutic or theranostic approaches with clear comprehension of the nanoparticle functioning mechanisms.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Pharmaceutics is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
