Applications of metals in medicine

Implantable materials make critical contributions to modern medicine. Many of the treatments we now take for granted (joint replacement, pacemakers, heart valves, stents) would not have been possible without the advanced metals, polymers, and ceramics that are available to the medical device community. The mechanisms of action and the roles of these metal compounds in cellular regulation and signaling in health and diseases are of principal interest. These areas are linked by the need to involve researchers having a deep understanding of inorganic chemistry in medically relevant research. This special issue presents a collection of papers dealing with different compounds/materials investigated for antitumoral, antimicrobial, and antifungal activity as well as DNA binding study.
