Iran to unveil local nanomedicine for liver, lung cancer

Tehran, Iran | Posted on May 21st, 2011

An official in charge of Iranian institution for expansion of nanotechnology, highlighted advantages of the nanomedicine and said, "chemical therapy's side effects spread through the whole body and cause hair loss which makes doctors stop medication or lessen amount of the medicines in patients, since high dose will poison patients. The nanomedicine can be placed only in the location of cancer tumors which increases effects of the drug and lessens side effects considerably."

"The new product has passed Drug Master File (DMF) process in Health Ministry and is awaiting confirmation from final committee of the ministry," Saeed Sarkar told ISNA.
