NANOTECHNOLOGY MAY BENEFIT MESOTHELIOMA PATIENTS

Nanotechnology is a new field that offers scientists the ability to control matter in very small dimensions including enhancement of the delivery of drugs to treat mesothelioma and lung cancer. Materials at the nanoscale can have different properties compared to their conventionally-scaled counterparts. Scientists can use the properties to enhance the quality of a drug. Because these properties have the ability to affect not only the effectiveness, but the safety of drugs, the FDA is currently studying issues related to Nanotechnology in medical products according to Celia N. Cruz, Ph.D., at the FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research.
