Commercializing nanomedicine : industrial applications, by Luca Escoffier, Mario Ganau, Julielynn Wong

By Luca Escoffier, Mario Ganau, Julielynn Wong

The authors of this booklet deal with all participants impending the research of nanomedicine for the 1st time ever, in addition to these already profitably operating within the box both as scientists, medical professionals, attorneys, or marketers. Teeming with exact, up to date, and stress-free content material, the e-book describes a few enlightening proof and figures referring to the turning out to be box of nanomedicine. Open difficulties and prospects are pointed out and mentioned, supplying a sequence of forecasts concerning its international impression on healthcare platforms within the coming 20 years. This creation is through 3 various sections: (a) one only medical, which delves deep into parts as diversified as proteomics or supply structures for nanodrugs, demonstrating how nanotechnology is reshaping the way in which prognosis and therapy of illnesses are made; (b) one concerned about the moral demanding situations that governments and corporations are dealing with or must face with a view to guard sufferers’ rights; and (c) one solely devoted to the criminal and entrepreneurial concerns which are riding this complete clinical revolution. within the pages of this lucidly written booklet, scientists and executives will surely locate the need-to-have device on their table to thrive and reach the commercialization of nanomedicine.

5 DNA-Directed Immobilization Diagnostic immunoassays and DNA sensing are driving efforts to miniaturize biological assays and to conduct them in parallel; specifically, DNA-based arrays are becoming the leading technology for high integration and miniaturization of bioassays [41, 42]. , showing that covalent DNA–streptavidin conjugates could be utilized for the reversible and site-selective immobilization of various biotinylated enzymes and antibodies [43]. Their pioneering experiments demonstrated that enzymes, such as biotinylated alkaline phosphatase, beta-galactosidase, or horseradish peroxidase, as well as antibodies, such as biotinylated anti–mouse or anti–rabbit immunoglobulins, could be coupled to the DNA–streptavidin adapters by simple, twocomponent incubation and that the resulting preconjugates could be exploited to hybridize complementary oligonucleotides by surface binding [44–46].
