Engineered Biomaterials: Progress and Prospects
Out of stock
Engineered Biomaterials: Progress and Prospects presents state-of-the-art developments in the area of biomaterials research exemplified by experts in the fields of tissue engineering, wound healing, bio-diagnostics, novel therapeutics and advanced drug delivery systems.
It provides a comprehensive account of preparation, characterisation, properties, processing, biological and clinical evaluation of a large variety of materials for specific biomedical applications. Basic concepts related to wound healing, tissue engineering and drug delivery systems, and the principal role played by macro, micro and nano scaled structures in biomaterials are presented in a clear manner. Developments in the area of conventional and advanced wound care strategies, materials for periodontal therapeutics, in-situ gelling tissue adhesives, biodegradable composites etc are illustrated in a lucid manner. Advanced processing techniques explored for the fabrication of micro-needles for vaccine delivery, 3D printing of personalized pharmaceuticals, bio-resorbable coatings, metallosurfactants and surface engineering of nanosystems are depicted in a straightforward and reasonable way.
This book also discusses various advanced therapeutic and diagnostic systems such as magnetic nanoparticle based hyperthermia and their surface functionalization techniques. Lipid-based nano delivery systems for psoriasis, irritable bowel syndrome and pain management, polyrotaxane polymers, wearable devices for sensing etc are also depicted in this book. The contents are designed in a manner that will be highly suited for academic researchers, clinicians and industrialists who wish to explore in the versatile field of biomaterials as it contains a wealth of valuable information that will be equally useful to both beginners as well as established researchers.
