From the Editors-

Advanced healthcare materials are attracting strong interest in the fundamental as well as applied medical science and technology. Advanced healthcare materials summarises the current status of know-how in the fields of advanced materials for functional therapeutics, point-of-care diagnostics, translational materials, up and coming bio-engineering devices. In this book, we have highlighted the key features, which enable to design stimuli-responsive smart nanoparticles, novel biomaterials, nano/micro-devices for diagnosis, therapy and/or both called theranostics. It offers the latest advancement of healthcare materials and medical technology. In narrative outline, this volume of Advanced Materials Book Series includes fourteen chapters divided into four main areas: functional therapeutics, point-of-care diagnostics, translational materials and up and coming bio-engineering devices.

The chapter on stimuli-responsive smart nanoparticles for biomedical application describes synthesis and engineering of stimuli-responsive polymeric nanosystems and their use in sensors, logic operations, biomedicine, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, synthetic muscles, ‘‘smart’’ optical or microelectromechanical systems, membranes, electronics and self-cleaning surfaces. The chapter titled, diagnosis and treatment of cancer – Where we are and where we have to go! overviews new methods and technology like functional nanoparticles based drug delivery and diagnostics systems to overcome obstacle in cancer diagnosis and treatment. Further, exploratory fundamental and cutting-edge account on advanced materials including nanoparticles, nanopolymers, metal-organic frameworks and zeolites in drug delivery and diagnostics is presented in the chapter, advanced materials for biomedical application and drug delivery however chapter entitled nanoparticles for diagnosis and/or treatment of Alzheimers disease focuses on nanotheragnostic approach for Alzheimers treatment.

The chapters on novel biomaterials for human health: hemocompatible polymeric micro- and nanoparticles and their application in biosensor and the contribution of smart materials and advanced clinical diagnostic micro-devices on the progress and improvement of human health care covered application of advanced healthcare materials for point-of-care diagnostics. The notable advantages and limitations of translational biomaterials describes in the chapters on hierarchical modelling of elastic behaviour of human dental tissue based on synchrotron diffraction characterization, biodegradable porous hydrogels and hydrogels: properties, preparation, characterization and biomedical applications in tissue engineering, drug delivery and wound care. The up and coming bio-engineering devices are covered in the chapters  titled, modified natural zeolites – functional characterization and biomedical application, supramolecular hydrogels based on cyclodextrin poly(pseudo)rotaxane for new and emerging biomedical applications, polyhydroxyalkanoate-based biomaterials for applications in biomedical engineering, biomimetic molecularly imprinted polymers as smart materials and future perspective in health care and the role of immunoassays in urine drug screening.

The book is written for a large readership including university students and researchers from diverse backgrounds such as chemistry, materials science, physics, pharmacy, medical science, and biomedical engineering. It can be used not only as a textbook for both undergraduate and graduate students, but also as a review and reference book for researchers in the materials science, bioengineering, medical, pharmacy, biotechnology and nanotechnology. We hope that chapters of this book will give a valuable insight in the major area of Advanced healthcare materials specially cutting-edge technology on functional therapeutics, point-of-care diagnostics, translational materials and up and coming bio-engineering devices to the readers. The interdisciplinary nature of the topics in this book will help young researchers and senior academicians. The main credit of this book goes to the contributors who have comprehensively written their updated chapters in the field advanced healthcare materials.
