A Brief Note on Nanomedicine
Nano medicine is the use of nanotechnology in medicine. Nano medicine encompasses everything from medicinal nanomaterials and biological devices to nano electronic biosensors and potentially future molecular nanotechnology applications such as biological machines. Nano medicine’s current challenges include determining the toxicity and environmental impact of nano scale compounds. Interfacing nanomaterial with biological molecules or structures can provide functionality to them. Because nanomaterials are close in size to most biological molecules and structures, they can be used for biomedical research and applications both in vivo and in vitro. Diagnostic gadgets, contrast agents, analytical instruments, physical therapy applications, and drug delivery vehicles have all been developed as a result of the integration of nanomaterial’s and biology thus far.
