'Nanotechnology and fight against TB'

Abstract:
Nanotechnology has been harnessed to fight tuberculosis in the developing world by boosting drug delivery, says a South African-led research consortium.

Led by the South African Council for Scientific and Industrial Research, researchers from the consortium hope to combat the spread of drug-resistant TB strains. They announced their results at the World Nano Economic Congress 2007 in Pretoria recently.

Tuberculosis is currently treated via a slow release of drugs over an extended period of time. The new technique can reduce the number of times drugs have to be administered and thereby help patients meet their treatment needs.
