Nanotechnology and Cancer

Nanotechnology is one of the most popular areas of scientific research, especially with regard to medical applications. It is one of the new detection methods that brings about cheaper, faster and less invasive cancer diagnoses. If scientists can load their cancer-detecting gold nano particles with anticancer drugs, they could attack the cancer exactly where it lives. Such a treatment means fewer side effects and less medication used. Nano particles also carry the potential for targeted and time-release drugs. A potent dose of drugs could be delivered to a specific area but engineered to release over a planned period to ensure maximum effectiveness and the patient's safety.
