Abstract

Nanomedicine is a growing research area dealing with the engineering of materials at a nanometer scale for the improvement of treatment, diagnosis, and imaging of diseases. In medicine and therapeutic applications, the use of nanostructures, such as nanofibrous materials and nanoparticles as drug-delivery systems has improved the bioavailability, intestinal absorption, solubility, sustained and on-demand drug release and targeted ...
