In recent years, the world has witnessed unprecedented challenges posed by infectious diseases. The rapid spread of pathogens and the emergence of drug-resistant strains have pointed towards the urgent need for innovative solutions in the field of medicine. As researchers and scientists delve deeper into the realm of nanotechnology, new avenues of combating infectious diseases are being unveiled. This book, Smart Nanomaterials for Infectious Diseases, explores the cutting-edge advances in nanotechnology and its promising potential in revolutionizing the way we approach and manage infectious illnesses.

The journey through the pages of this book will take you on an enlightening tour of nanomaterials and their applications in combating infectious diseases. We have carefully curated a collection of chapters that not only discuss the theoretical aspects but also present practical approaches to deal with infectious diseases.

The exploration begins with “Carbon-reinforced Polymer Nanocomposites Against Infectious Diseases,” which sets the foundation for understanding the role of nanocomposites in disease management. From there, we delve into “Nanostrategies for Infectious Pulmonary Diseases: Current Progress and Future Prospects,” addressing a critical aspect of respiratory infections and the possibilities of nanomedicine.

“Biofilm-associated Infections and Their Management” presents novel strategies for tackling the stubborn problem of biofilms, and “Green Nanomaterials Zinc Oxide and Chitosan for Antimicrobial Activity Against Oral Pathogens” explores eco-friendly alternatives for oral health.

The book ventures further into “Biopolymer-based Drug Delivery Systems: Synthesis Strategies, Functionalization, and Applications,” offering insights into sophisticated delivery systems, and “Mechanism of Silver and Gold Nanoparticles Against Infectious Disease-causing Pathogens,” shedding light on the fascinating antimicrobial properties of noble metal nanoparticles.

As we progress, the book also addresses the critical issue of “Nanotoxicology and Its Remediation,” ensuring the safety of nanomaterials, and “Biocompatibility and Functionalization of Sustainable Nanomaterials,” enhancing their potential applications.

In the face of specific infectious diseases, “Nanomaterial-based Narrowband UVB Light-emitting Devices for Phototherapy Treatment of Infectious Skin Diseases” presents a breakthrough in skin therapy, while “Bioengineered Nanomaterials: Recent Trends and Bottlenecks in the Management of Infectious Diseases” explores avenues to manage infectious diseases.

The ongoing challenges posed by SARS-CoV-2 are addressed in the chapters “Ex Vivo Immunization: A Strategy for Immunization Against SARS-CoV-2” and “Neuroinvasion by SARS-CoV-2 Influences the Prognosis of Neurological Disorders,” offering valuable insights into potential solutions.

Amidst these scientific endeavors, it is crucial to acknowledge the societal aspects. “Socioeconomics: Involving Communities in the Fight Against Infectious Illnesses for Stronger Health Systems” explores the collective role in battling diseases.

The book culminates with two essential aspects: “Sustainable Nanomaterials for Mosquito-based Infectious Disease Control” and “Sustainable Nanomaterials and Diagnosis for Arboviral Infections,” highlighting eco-friendly solutions for disease management.

Lastly, we offer “A Brief Appraisal of Nanomaterials for COVID-19,” a succinct summary of the role that nanomaterials played in the fight against the pandemic.

We are confident that the contents of this book will serve as a valuable resource for researchers, practitioners, and enthusiasts alike, fostering interdisciplinary collaborations to combat infectious diseases effectively. Our sincere appreciation goes to the contributors who have shared their expertise and knowledge to make this endeavor possible.

Embrace the knowledge presented within these pages and join us in shaping a healthier, more resilient future through smart nanomaterials.
