Nanotech capsules may aid TB treatment

Abstract:
The Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), in collaboration with international partner Ayanda Biosystems based at the Science Park of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne is currently developing nanotechnology capsules for tuberculosis (TB) treatment.

Known as 'the technology of the very small', nanotechnology enables scientists to manipulate materials and particles that are a billionth of a metre, or about 1/80 000th of the diameter of a human hair.

The nanocapsules were being tested on animals, and the developers hoped that they would eventually decrease the number and frequency of drugs used by TB patients.
