Ironing Out Blood Impurities

Abstract:
Magnetized nanoparticles may one day be the treatment of choice for people needing to detox -- whether they be a soldier in the field contaminated by anthrax or a civilian who has partied way too hard and is suffering from a drug overdose. The nanoparticles, designed at the Argonne National Laboratory, come fitted with receptors designed to identify, and then latch onto, target molecules. The nanoparticles are injected into the bloodstream, where they circulate through the body, picking up their target toxins as they go.
