Prompted by the considerable impact and substantial potential of recent advances and emerging possibilities in gene technology, biomarkers and ‘omics’ technologies, nanobiotechnology, stem cells, and companion diagnostics on reliable diagnosis and effective therapy of various cancers, the authors have attempted to produce a fullyupdated and comprehensive outline of the applications of exploitable nanoscience and nanotechnology in combating cancer. The study also introduces the reader to nucleic acids (especially dynamic DNA), gene mutations, viruslike particles, immunology and vaccines, plant nutraceuticals and the sunshine superstar (the wonder vitamin D) in the context of prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancers. While taking the reader on an exciting journey through several disciplines such as ayurveda, allopathy, traditional and complementary medicine, chemotherapy and nanomedicine, some closely related issues of general health and diseases other than cancer are also touched upon briefly wherever relevant.
the gap between discovery and development by translating targets and pathways to clinical efficacy, and points to future trends in cancer therapy and drug development. Besides its overall utility for the medical fraternity, this book would serve as a balanced text or supplementary reading material for students, researchers and teachers of modern medicine, ayurveda, nanomedicine, healthcare biotechnology, immunology, pathology, pharmaceutics and molecular biology. It is supported by the most uptodate literature citations.
