S Africa research council to help Kenya on nano-technology
South Africa's Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) announced recently that it is to collaborate with researchers in Kenya to develop a nano-medicine technology aimed to revolutionise treatment of communicable diseases.
The aim of the technology is to improve on the efficiency of the existing drugs used in the treatment of diseases like HIV/AIDS, TB and malaria.
The head of CSIR Dr Hulda Swai said in Nairobi that the use of Nano-medicine and nanotechnology has the capacity to achieve breakthroughs in healthcare.
"This technology is doable," Dr Swai said, "It has the potential to enable early detection and prevention, and to essentially improve diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of diseases."
Nano-medicine is defined as the application of nanotechnology to achieve breakthroughs in healthcare. It exploits the improved chemical and biological properties of drug materials.
