The Era of Nanoparticle Drugs Begins With Erection Cream

Abstract:
Tiny drug-carrying balls of sugar are delivering medicine in novel—and very useful—ways.

One use for nanoparticles that is gaining momentum is their ability to carry prescription drugs. And one of the first nanoparticle-based products to pass animal trials is a topical cream for erectile dysfunction, which could potentially replace the tremendously popular ED drugs. Joel Friedman, a professor at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine; Adam Friedman, the chief dermatology resident at Albert Einstein Medical Center; and Kelvin Davies, an associate professor of urology, have demonstrated that nanoparticles can be used to deliver erection drugs in the form of a topical cream.
