- Nanotechnology for Parkinson’s treatment: a novel encapsulation approach allows efficient dopamine delivery to the brain
- 14 September 2021
Read the latest Nanopinion guest column from Dr. Daniel Ruiz-Molina about a novel nanotechnological encapsulation approach to deliver dopamine to the brain. The delivery could be used to treat Parkinson’s disease, which is caused by a deficit of dopamine due to the death of the neurons responsible for its production.
Nanomaterials and health
Are substances in nanoforms more dangerous than they are in their normal size? Some are and some are not. Just like any other chemical substance, nanomaterials have to be assessed separately.
Nanomaterials are not only used in consumer products, but also in new and innovative medical treatments. Research has shown that nanoparticles can be used to damage and even destroy cancer cells from within.
