NanoMedicine will revolutionise the way we view and treat disease.
If Medical Nanotechnology were to only achieve a fraction of its potential it would provide a new era of health and longevity for human life.
NanoMedicine would provide a way of detecting disease before patients would even display symptoms and provide a way of treating that disease without side effects.
It could provide a way of detecting disease at the cellular level in the earliest stages of disease. New techniques being developed would do away with lengthy waits for results of diagnostic tests and would provide instantaneous diagnosis. The earlier a disease is diagnosed the earlier it can be treated an often the more successful the treatment would be.
With current techniques in development tailored drug delivery could become commonplace in a clinical setting. This would enable treatment of cancer without side effects. Targeted drug delivery systems would mean the cancer drugs would only affect the cancerous cells sparing the healthy cells. Negating the usual effects of chemo and radiotherapies, whilst simultaneously having a higher efficacy.
