Nanomedicine*

Abstract

Nanomedicine is the application of nanotechnology in medicine. This field of study is based on three powerful molecular technologies: nanoscale-structured materials and devices; molecular medicine via genomics, proteomics, and artificially engineered microorganisms; and molecular machine systems. A significant number of applications in nanomedicine are being discovered and used such as Nano-ophthalmology, Nanocardiology, Nanopharmaceuticals, Nanodermatology. Nanopharmaceuticals consist of discovery, development, and delivery of drugs (highly branched polymer). Nano-ophthalmology has been used for a decade to improve the delivery and safety of drugs used for treating disorders of the eye. The areas of Nano-ophthalmology ...
