New Evidence on Calcifying Nanoparticle as a Cause of Chronic Infection, and Potential Danger of Other Nano-Apatite Particles Used in Medicine
TAMPA, FL | Posted on June 28th, 2007
The case report involves accidental human eye exposure to CNPs and a strong immune response against proteins carried by the nanoparticles. The antibody persisted over 10 years at a high level. The condition was diagnosed by the Company's ELISA blood test.
"These findings support our underlying goal on developing diagnostics and therapies that target the infectious agent that ultimately leads to pathological calcification," commented Dr. Benedict Maniscalco, Nanobac's Medical director.
