Nanomedicine, the application of nanotechnology to health, raises high expectations for millions of patients for better, more efficient and affordable healthcare and has the potential of delivering promising solutions to many illnesses. Research in nanomedicine will allow for a better understanding of the functioning of the human body at molecular and nanometric level and it will thus give us the possibility to intervene better at pre-symptomatic, acute or chronic stage of illnesses. This book concentrates on the broad area of application of Nanotechnology in Human health with the special emphasis on diseases diagnostics and therapeutics from basic principles to the most recent discoveries. The areas of focus include the Nanomedicinal approach for ocular and CNS delivery, different inorganic nanoparticles used as delivery vehicle for breast and brain delivery and some promising applications of nanotechnology were included.
