Nanotechnology Now welcomes Earl Boysen and his new column on 'Understanding Nanotechnology'

Banks, OR | Posted on January 19th, 2007

This month's column is titled "Nano Aids Delivery of Drugs in Patients."

For diabetics who have to inject insulin several times a day, or cancer patients experiencing debilitating side effects from treatment, the benefits of improved drug delivery through the application of nanotechnology may be life changing. Drug delivery using nano techniques is helping researchers to target delivery of drugs to diseased cells to avoid side effects, provide drugs such as insulin in pill form, deliver drugs through skin lotions, and even help you avoid catching the common cold.
