Now, a minuscule rival for Viagra

Abstract:
By using nanotechnology - the science of tiny particles - researchers have created a fast-acting treatment for impotence that could rival Viagra.

The treatment has so far only been tested in animals but the researchers behind it say the same approach could also benefit humans.

Viagra and other drugs take time to show their effects, as they have to be taken orally. Some users can suffer side-effects such as headaches, facial flushing and indigestion, reports The Times.

The nanoparticle approach, by contrast, worked in less than 10 minutes and its effects seem to be limited to the relevant parts of the body, according to the researchers.

Kelvin Davies of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York, who oversaw the research, said the results showed the potential for "nano-medicines".
