Innovations in nano medicines may be effective in diagnosing, treating cancer without side effects

Abstract:
Nano particles are proving to be useful for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and targeted drug delivery. This is a major breakthrough in the field of cancer treatment, stated Dr Avinash Pandey - Professor & Head, Nanotechnology Application Centre, University of Allahabad.

Dr Pandey was speaking at the 3rd Bangalore Nano 2010 on the latest developments in the field of nano medicine. In this topic 'Towards Table Top MRI Theragonostics: efficacy of functionalized Nano-sized MRI contrast,' he described how existing formulations of Gd-DTPA can be modified to Gd2S3.En3+ to act as Luminiscent Magnetic Quantum Dots (LMQD)to enhance the contrast in MRI imaging. Newly synthesized nano particles have the capability to cross the brain bold barrier, a fact that will lead to tremendous innovations in the field of medicine. With theragnostics, it will become possible to use the same particles for diagnosis and therapy.
