Nanotechnology Enables Low-Dose of Drug to Attack Artery-Clogging Plaques

Abstract:
For many senior citizens the word "nanotechnology" probably sounds like something out of Star Wars, which, however, is also a little new for many seniors. But, nanotechnology will most likely have a profound impact of the lives of many of people as they face the challenges of aging. A good example is new information on a laboratory test where one very low dose of a drug was enough to show an effect on notoriously tenacious artery-clogging plaques. What kind of drug is that potent?
