Summary
Encouraging communication between clinical investigators and nanoscientists, Nanotechnology for Cancer Therapy focuses specifically on effective and promising nanoscience and nanotechnology strategies for imaging and treating cancer. Among the various approaches considered, nanotechnology offers the best promise for the targeted delivery of drugs and genes to a tumor site and for alleviating side effects of chemotherapeutic agents. Renowned industrial and academic researchers describe the advantages of nanoparticles as sensing, delivery, image enhancement agents for cancer treatments, and vari
