Nanotechnological Applications in Virology explores the use of nanoparticles-based technologies to fight against viruses, also discussing the use of nanoparticles in the preparation of nano masks and as sanitizing agents. The role of nanotechnology against HIV, Hepatitis, Influenza, Herpes, Ebola and Zika using rapid detection and diagnostic techniques is included, as is a brief description of SARS, MERS, the novel Coronavirus, and recent advancements in its treatment process. Other sections cover the formulation of novel nano-vaccines for the treatment and control of viral infections like HIV, Hepatitis and COVID-19. Included toxicological studies of nanoparticles provide readers with a brief overview on global scenarios regarding viral infections. Nanotechnology is the present age technology, with wide usage in different areas of medical science, including drug delivery, gene therapy, antimicrobials, biosensors and bio-labelling. Nanoparticles play a competent role as an anti-infection agent and thus act as efficient antiviral agents. Mitochondria as a Key Intracellular Target of Thallium Toxicity presents a new hypothesis that explains the decrease in antioxidant defense in thallium poisoning. In addition, the book proposes a new model for studying the transport of inorganic cations across the inner mitochondrial membrane. Readers will learn about the toxicity of thallium and its compounds, the toxicology of thallium, the toxic thallium effects on cells, and the effects of thallium on mitochondria. This book+J136 lists the pathways and mechanisms of thallium transport into cells and mitochondria. This toxicity has been analyzed at both the cellular and subcellular levels. The increase in human contact with the toxic trace element thallium is associated with developments in industry, the release of this metal into the environment from various rocks, and the use of special isotope techniques for studying the vascular bed.

Emerging Nanomaterials and Nano-based Drug Delivery Approaches to Combat Antimicrobial Resistance focuses on recent and emerging trends surrounding nanomaterials and nano-drug delivery approaches to combat antimicrobial resistance. The relationship between nanomaterials and antimicrobial activity needs to be deeply explored to meet the challenges of combating antimicrobial resistance. The content of this book is divided into three main topic areas, including (i) how to overcome the existing traditional approaches to combat antimicrobial resistance, (ii) applying multiple drug delivery mechanisms to target multi-drug resistant microbes, and (iii) how nanomaterials can be used as drug carriers. This is an important reference source for those looking to understand how nanotechnology plays an important role in combatting disease and infection. As antimicrobial resistance threatens the effective prevention and treatment of an ever-increasing range of infections caused by bacteria, parasites, viruses, and fungi, this is a timely resource. Outlines how to overcome existing traditional approaches to combatting antimicrobial resistance Explains how to apply multiple drug delivery mechanisms (MDR) to the target area in order to better combat antimicrobial resistance Shows how nanomaterials are used as drug carriers in this context
