The meeting was dedicated to novel aspects of nanomedicine, including polymer drug delivery systems (DDS) and biomaterials. Self-assembled micellar DDS have been evaluated in terms of morphology, biological properties, and results of clinical trials. Important advances in the design of nanoparticles as DDS have been highlighted in various presentations. Unexpected issues of polymer-related biological effects, including gene expression, were stressed in relation to polymer DDS. Great potential of nanofabrication of biomaterials, and preliminary data on the design of polymer scaffolds were demonstrated in a number of reports. This symposium demonstrated how timely the development of nanosised DDS is, with advances in understanding the disease-related mechanisms, and outlined the major areas of application of nanomedicine technology.
