'Nanomedicine is at the frontline of new drug delivery'

Abstract:
They are shrinking our medical world. Soon there will be ‘midgets' in drugs, scans and possibly all that touches us health-wise.

Drug researchers are going to unimaginably small or ‘nano' lengths — a millionth of a millimetre or less — to create accurate disease detection, affordable cures and targeted medicine.

In India, if Dabur brought the first nanotechnology-based delivery system with onco drug Nanoxel this year, Biocon says it will launch breast cancer nanodrug Abraxane, developed by Abraxis Biosciences, US, in early 2008.
