Medicine's future: Tiny nanofactories
Imagine not having to go to the doctor when you are sick. No medicine, no popping pills.
Instead, tiny cell-like machines in your body would manufacture medicine and deliver it exactly where it is needed.
University of Maryland researchers said these "nanofactories" may not be that far away.
Nanofactories are pseudo-cells that are swallowed, inhaled or absorbed through the skin and travel to a specific location in the body.
What's unique about these tiny biochemical factories is that they could potentially use materials already in the body to manufacture medicine at the first sign of infection or disease.
