Nanotech Moves Closer to Cure

Abstract:
Howard Lovy: Today, the National Cancer Institute is on its way to becoming a Nano Cancer Institute as it prepares to spend $144.3 million over five years on the engineered nanoparticles "approach" that (Dr. James) Baker and just a few others had championed more than a decade ago. As for Baker, he's doing rather well in his corner office at the Center for Biologic Nanotechnology with a panoramic view of downtown Ann Arbor, Michigan.

The best-case scenario, Baker says, is nanotech-enabled cancer therapy in your doctors' office within five years. But that's assuming an accelerated approval process, being pushed by nanotech advocates, which is by no means a foregone conclusion. Left to the normal FDA process, it could be a decade or more.
