Abstract [en]

Biomaterials are the fastest-growing emerging field of  biodevices. Design and development of biomaterials play a significant role in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases. Recently, a variety of scaffolds/carriers have been evaluated for tissue regeneration, drug delivery, sensing and imaging.  Liposomes and microspheres have been developed for sustained delivery. Several anti-cancer drugs have been successfully formulated using biomaterial. The targeting of drugs to certain physiological sites has emerged as a promising tool in the treatment with improved drug bioavailability and reduction of dosing frequency. Biodevices-based targeting of drugs may improve the therapeutic success by limiting the adverse drug effects and resulting in more patient compliance and attaining a higher adherence level. Advanced biodevices hold merit as a drug carrier with high carrier capacity, feasibility of incorporation of both hydrophilic and hydrophobic substances, high stability, as well as the feasibility of variable courses. Biodevices for diagnosis of diseases by improving the sensitivity and selectivity on the biomaterials platform is the most latest R & D focus especially in the field of treatment by the prognosis and detection of disease in the early stage. This groundbreaking book is devoted to all of the emerging areas of biomaterials and biodevices including therapeutic agents, molecular targeting and diagnostic imaging capabilities. The senior contributors write on the following topics:

  • Frontiers for bulk nanostructured metals
  • Stimuli-responsive materials used as medical devices
  • Recent advances with liposomes as drug carriers
  • Fabrication, Properties of nanoshells with controllable surface charge
  • Advanced healthcare materials: Chitosan
  • Anticipating behaviour of advanced material in healthcare
  • Label free biochips
  • Polymer MEMS sensors
  • Assembly of polymers/metal nanoparticles
  • Combination of molecular imprinting and nanotechnology
  • Efficiency of biosensors as new generation of analytical approaches
  • State-of-the-art of biosensors in healthcare
