Paper Abstract

Nanomedicine focuses on a new approach to diagnostic and therapeutic strategies. Nanomedical systems distinguish between diseased and healthy cells on a single cell level and perform a programmed function when necessary. Current research in nanomedicine investigates the interaction of nanomedical systems with living systems in order to assess the biological effects both in the short and long term. The unique goal of the nanomedical system is to deliver a gene for in situ manufacturing of therapeutic agents for cellular repair. Treating cells on an individual level illustrates a paradigm shift created from nanotechnology.
