A Spoonful of Nano

Abstract:
These days, it's a spoonful of Cremophor a polyethoxylated castor oil that makes the anti-cancer drug Taxol go down and ensure that it's absorbed by the body. But this kind of castor oil is not merely hard to swallow; it can be toxic, creating the need for more medication in another link in chain-reaction treatment that is decidedly old school.

So, flying in from above, nanotechnology recently arrived on the scene with a groundbreaking FDA approval of a drug that makes breast cancer treatment a comparative piece of cake.
