Nanotechnology: It's Knocking on FDA's Door

Abstract:
"The Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies -- using information contained in the 2006 Nanomedicine, Device & Diagnostics Report -- recently examined just two sets of nanotechnology medical applications: cancer-relevant drugs (total: 77) and drug delivery applications (total: 56). While this was only a very preliminary assessment, the analysis shows the nanotechnology pipeline of medical products is growing and could pose a major challenge to the agency's resources and expertise in the near future," said Rejeski.
