Summary "This book is the results of the contribution of a number of experts from the international scientific community in the respective field of research. It thoroughly covers some of the latest applications of inorganic nano materials in medical science. Nanoscience and nanotechnology are steering mankind into new realms of efficient and miniature tools and appliance. Currently, this field of research is a major focus area of scientific interest, due to its huge potential in all areas of science and engineering. So, it has enormous potential also in the modern medical research, disease diagnosis and therapy. With nanotechnology, scientists are acquiring abilities to understand and manipulate materials at the scale of atoms and molecules. In the process, they are creating the potential for people to see the world, act in it, and change it, in fundamentally new ways. While many of the present applications of nanotechnology are mundane, future applications may seem miraculous. Just as they have with electricity, automobiles, and computers, people will use nanotechnology to change their lives, their work, their habits, their notions of fun and play, and so much more. In relation with the title of this book, inorganic or inorganic based hybrids or composite nano materials, which have some innovative applications in the treatment of disease such as cancer, cardiovascular etc. and drug or gene delivery, imaging diagnosis, sensors etc. has been targeted and included in this book. Inorganic nanomedicine is a multidisciplinary research area includes, chemistry, physics, biochemistry, biotechnology medical science and engineering"--Preface
