Nanomedicine continues to show promise of developing innovative and effective techniques for combating cancer. The great benefit of most of these treatments is that they attack malignant tumors and cells directly without damaging healthy tissue. This is a welcome contrast to traditional chemotherapy treatments that damage healthy and cancerous tissue alike.
Google Inc. is designing tiny magnetic particles to patrol the human body for signs of cancer and other diseases, in the latest example of the Internet giant’s sweeping ambition.
Google said its nanoparticles, less than one-thousandth the width of a red blood cell, would seek out and attach themselves to cells, proteins or other molecules inside the body. The company also is working on a wearable device with a magnet to attract and count the particles, as a monitoring tool.
Working on a very small scale lets scientists give drugs abilities denied to larger molecules.
Nearly 250 nanomedicine products are being used or tested in humans, according to a new analysis that identified emerging trends in this sector. But experts caution that the long-term impact of nanomedicine products on human health and the environment is still uncertain.
The human body is a nanoscale engineer par excellence. Our cells push and pull billions of molecules around every second in order to grow, communicate with each other, attack invaders or heal after injury.
Nanotechnology applications in many fields have the potential to profoundly change the world of everyday experience. Here are some recent achievements in nanomedicine.
Given how varied nanotechnological research is—and how freighted it can be with misconceptions—it’s sometimes tempting to dismiss the term nanotechnology outright. As Bentley puts it, the word once helped get people excited, but when it began to grow more pervasive, it grew increasingly “difficult to identify what’s relevant.”
What happens, they ask, when these nanomaterials and products get into the environment, or into our bodies? Can the cool things they are designed to do also be harmful if they end up in the wrong place?
The European Science Foundation has defined nanomedicine as “the science and technology of diagnosing, treating and preventing disease and traumatic injury, of relieving pain, and of preserving and improving human health, using molecular tools and molecular knowledge of the human body.” In contrast to the traditional medical fields, nanomedicine focuses its efforts specifically towards research and development on the nanoscale.
Yup. Really, nanotech is not a discipline or field in its own right so much as a broad umbrella that encompasses a wide array of other areas of inquiry. From this perspective, it’s likely to be more of a bridge toward innovation in those fields rather than a singularly transformative force in its own right.
Scientists have long said that tiny robots would soon be able to conduct surgery and deliver drugs deep inside the body. Here’s why they’re still not a reality.
