Nanocarriers for Cancer Diagnosis and Targeted Chemotherapy Book Review:

Nanocarriers for Cancer Diagnosis and Targeted Chemotherapy reviews the principles and applications of nanocarriers for targeted drug delivery. Drug targeting involves active and passive strategies that exploit both the use of ligands for interactions and the physical and chemical properties of nanocarriers and micro-environments at target sites. Multidrug resistance and adverse side effects associated with anticancer drugs have attracted greater scientific attention and led formulation scientists to specifically target these drugs to target sites. Nanocarriers like liposomes, niosomes, gold nanorods, carbon nanotubes, and micelles are discussed for the delivery of drugs to specific disease sites. This is an important reference source for researchers in the biomedical and biomaterials fields who want to gain an understanding on how nanotechnology is used for earlier diagnoses and more effective cancer treatment. Explores the fundamental principles of drug targeting through different nano-carriers, highlighting major applications Shows how the use of nanocarriers is leading to quicker cancer diagnosis and more effective treatment Discusses the major challenges of using nanocarriers for drug delivery and assesses how to overcome these barriers

Development of multifunctional poly glycidyl methacrylate PGMA nanoparticles for targeted cancer therapy and imaging Book Review:

[Truncated] Nanoparticle based chemotherapy has been predicated to be one of the frontrunners in the field of cancer diagnosis and treatment. Currently, nanoparticle-mediated cancer targeted therapy mainly relies on the abnormal tumor microenvironment for distribution and retention of the nanoparticles. The design and development of multifunctional second-generation nanoparticles seek to expand upon the benefits of these firstgeneration nanoparticles by combining therapeutic and diagnostic functions within a single formulation and are commonly referred to as theranostic agents. These agents can simultaneously deliver imaging probes and therapeutics to specific sites or organs, enabling detection and treatment of disease in a single procedure. Theranostic agents are expected to inform us about localization of the drug and pathological processes longitudinally. This will help make informed decisions about timing, dosage, drug choice, and treatment strategies. However, any additional design feature in drug development will come at the cost of additional regulatory, production, and financial hurdles. The trade-off between these costs and clinical benefit will be highly dependent on the choices made when designing drug nanoparticles. Considering these aforementioned criteria, for successful clinical translation, preclinical development of a multifunctional nanoformulation needs to encompass utilization of simple and efficient conjugation methodologies, pertinent yet readily available and cost-effective targeting ligands, and assessment of efficacy in relevant animal models that mimic the clinical situation. The work presented in this thesis is a systematic progression from development to validation of poly(glycidyl methacrylate) (PGMA) based multifunctional nanoparticles as versatile nanocarriers for receptor-mediated targeted delivery, in models of ovarian and prostate cancers, in vitro and in vivo respectively. The availability of the epoxide functionality in PGMA enables efficient functionalization through nucleophilic ring opening reactions making PGMA an ideal platform for the conjugation of targeting ligands.
