Nanomedicines and Nanoproducts: Applications, Disposition, and Toxicology in the Human Body provides a detailed overview of the disposition of nanoproducts within the body, with a special focus on the respiratory and olfactory routes of nanoproduct administration, buccal exposure and the ingestion of nanoproducts, the integumentary system (formed by the skin, hair, nails, and associated glands), the ocular route, the systemic route, and toxicology as it relates to the nanoscale world.
Offering an interdisciplinary, big-picture view of the current and future state of nanotechnology, this book:
Nanomedicines and Nanoproducts: Applications, Disposition, and Toxicology in the Human Body addresses the scope of practical nanoparticle applications in academic research as well as industrial investigation, where "practical" is defined as advantageous in all aspects of nanoproduct disposition, efficacy, and toxicology. The book’s goal is to introduce potentially beneficial applications and exciting topics regarding nanoproducts to a variety of professional and general readers.
Eiki Igarashi is CEO of Nanosion Co., Ltd., a nanobioventure company in Tokyo, Japan. He is also a guest investigator at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, Tokyo, Japan, where he collects and reviews medical information regarding the practical application, toxicology, and pharmacokinetics of nanoproducts and nanomaterials, ranging from metallic nanoparticles and carbon nanotubes to nanomedicines, nanofoods, nanocosmeceuticals, and nanoconsumer products. He holds a doctoral degree from Hiroshima University, Japan, and has worked in various capacities with Marion Merrell Dow Co., Ltd. (the pharmaceutical company of the Dow Chemical Company), Hirakata, Japan; Kyoto University, Japan; and Hoechst Marion Roussel Co., Ltd., Tokyo, Japan.
