Nanotechnology in Drug Delivery and Tissue Engineering

Nanotechnology in Drug Delivery and Tissue Engineering : 

The application of nanotechnology in medicine, referred to as nanomedicine, is offering numerous exciting possibilities in healthcare.

Drug delivery
Nanoscale delivery vehicles can (1) enhance the therapeutic efficacy and minimize adversities associated with available drugs; (2) enable new classes of therapeutics; and (3) encourage the re-investigation of pharmaceutically suboptimal but biologically active new molecular entities that were previously considered undevelopable.

Tissue engineering
Nanotechnology can enable the design and fabrication of biocompatible scaffolds at the nanoscale and control the spatiotemporal release of biological factors—resembling native extracellular matrix—to direct cell behaviors, and eventually lead to the creation of implantable tissues.
