Nanotechnology in the area of Medicine:Applying nanotechnology for treatment, diagnosis, monitoring, and control of diseases has been referred to as “nanomedicine”.Nanotechnology covers nanoparticle drug delivery and possible future applications of molecular nanotechnology and nanovaccinology. It’s main function is the identification of exact location (receptor and cell) causing malfunction of body and the selection of the right nanocarriers to deliver the desired result without causing any severe side effect to the body.
In the near future, advancement in nanomedicine will deliver a valuable set of research tools and clinically helpful devices. Nanotechnology could prove very beneficial in the field of medicines and drugs but some predicted benefits are hyped.Use of Quantum dots in the treatment of cancer is great advancement in this area. Quantum dots glow when exposed to UV light. When injected they seep into cancer tumour.The surgeon can see the glowing tumour. Nanotechnology could be very helpful in regenerating the injured nerves.
