Exploratory Brief on Nanomedicine or the Application of Nanotechnology in Human Health Care

This exploratory report provides a summary of some of the published information on the current status of research in and potential future sphere of activity of nanomedicine (Part I) and an inventory of resources on nanotechnology and nanomedicine (Part II). Over the next 5 to 10 years it is expected that the overall impact of nanomedicine will be multifaceted, with significant advances in patient screening, diagnosis, staging, treatment, and monitoring. Opportunities include more sensitive and reliable diagnostics and biosensors, improved imaging techniques, and innovative therapeutics to enhance the safety and effectiveness in predicting and managing diseases.
