Chennai: The Haven of Medical Research

Abstract:
The latest on the cards is research in nanotechnology. Nanotechnology, pundits predict, is out to change the face of healthcare. Says Dr Gopal, "We are trying to use nanotechnology to facilitate the penetration of molecules inside a target cell. Retinoblastoma is a cancer of childhood and can potentially lead to threat to eye as well as life. The disease is fairly common and on an average we see nearly three-five cases per week. The eye may have to be removed in advanced cases while others may sometimes respond to chemo therapy. Using nanotechnology, we are currently researching into the possibility of a drug targeting the tumor cells selectively, thereby reducing the toxicity to other tissues and improving the efficacy in destroying the tumor itself," adds Dr Gopal. At present, an expert from Sankara Nethralaya has been granted a fellowship by ICMR to pursue research in the field of nanotechnology with US-based scientists.
