Nanomedicine for Ischemic Cardiomyopathy Book Review:

Nanomedicine for Ischemic Cardiomyopathy: Progress, Opportunities, and Challenges provides an overview on the recent advances in diagnostic and treatment of ischemic cardiomyopathy diseases including myocardial infarction. Shortcomings of the current methods and how nanomedicine can address those obstacles in the field are discussed including the limitations of newly developed cell therapy approaches to clinical translation and how nanomedicine may overcome crucial issues and facilitate the successful and efficient clinical translation of cell therapy. Biomolecular therapy is also explored as another powerful approach for regeneration of heart tissue including available methods and systematic delivery of biomolecules using nanocarriers to the injured part of myocardium through active targeting. Finally, coverage of major tissue engineering advances for myocardial regeneration, including use of epicardial nanostructured patches for regeneration of injured epicardium and the highly conductive patches for enhancing cross talks between the cardiomyocytes, is explored. This concise, yet rigorous coverage, of the field of cardiac nanotechnology outlines the innovative and necessary role of nanomedicine in regenerative medicine for cardiac repair allowing researchers, clinicians, and nanotechnologists to examine the strengths and limitations of current findings and predict future trends to advance the applications of nanotechnology in cardiovascular biomedical research.

Fundamentals and Applications of Controlled Release Drug Delivery Book Review:

This book approaches the subject from a mechanistic perspective that pitches the language at a level that is understandable to those entering the field and who are not familiar with its common phrases or complex terms. It provides a simple encapsulation of concepts and expands on them. In each chapter the basic concept is explained as simply and clearly as possible without a great deal of detail, then in subsequent sections additional material, exceptions to the general rule, examples, etc., is introduced and built up. Such material was generously supplemented with diagrams; conceptually elegant line diagrams in two or three colors. The artwork was well thought out and able to condense the scientific principles into a novel and visually exciting form. The diagrams encourage browsing or draw the reader to salient points. In addition, the technique of highlighting key concepts in a separate box is used throughout each chapter.

Safety of Nanoparticles Book Review:

In spite of the potential use of nanomaterials as tissue engineering devices, implants, biosensors, drug delivery devices, etc., there has yet to be a compilation of the risks associated with the in vivo use of nanomaterials. There are numerous and well-known risks because of the size of nanoparticles. For example, nanoparticles can cross cell membranes and enter the cytoplasm undetected. The aim of this book is to provide one of the first (if not the first) detailed views of how cells and tissues in the body deal with nanoparticles. This is important not only for implantable devices, but also for the manufacturing of nanophase materials when particles can be inhaled or enter the body through the skin. Only by compiling research at the intersection of nanoparticles and biological processes can we determine if nanophase materials are safe to be manufactured, handled, and/or implanted for various medical applications.
