The Fullerene molecule is a carbon-based nano-scale structure of 60 carbon atoms arranged in a 3-dimensional soccer ball- like sphere. It is highly stable, but it can be modified with functional groups for desired biological activity. This new monograph in the ASME-Momentum Press series on Biomedical & Nanomedical Technologies will explore the basic physics and chemistry of Fullerenes, how the Fullerene molecule can be chemically modified with bio-active moieties, and then how it can be applied in clinical use. Examples of antimicrobial and anti-cancer uses will be discussed.

Because of their biocompatibility and desirable mechanical properties, chitosan along with other materials like hydroxyapatite and polycaprolactone have been studied and used as tor create engineered matrices--'scaffolds'--for artificially growing tissue for medical uses in tissue and organ repair. This new monograph in the ASME-Momentum Press series on Biomedical and Nanomedical Technologies, will discuss the latest uses of computer-aided technologies for designing such scaffolds and performing characterization to create desired mechanical and physical properties.

Chitosan, a natural based polymer obtained by alkaline deacetylation of chitin, is non-toxic, biocompatible, and biodegradable. These properties make chitosan a good candidate for the development of conventional and novel drug delivery systems. Recently, there has been a growing interest in the chemical modification of chitosan in order to improve its solubility and widen its applications.

Despite progress in surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy, an effective treatment of gliomas does not yet exist. This new monograph in the ASME-Momentum Press series on Biomedical & Nanomedical Technologies book shows how nanotechnology could be used both to improve the treatment efficacy and to reduce the adverse side effects. It will explain how nanotechnology-based approaches to targeted delivery of drugs across the brain-blood barrier may potentially be engineered to carry out specific functions as needed.
