Nanomedicine ppt

Published in: Technology, Business
  • Very interesting ppt on nano-medicine & use of nano-technology. It reminds me ,when I saw one movie in 1967 "THE FANTASTIC VOYAGE " Beautiful example of Nano-medicine I believe this picture was made in 1950 & now imagination fiction a reality.

  1. 1. 1 Presentation Topic : Nanomedicine A BRIEF INTRODUCTORY OUTLINE
  2. 2. Outline Introduction to nanomedicine • Applications of nanomedicine • Advantages and disadvantages • Conclusion • 2
  3. 3. Nanotechnology 3
  4. 4. What is Nanotechnology ? Nanotechnology is the engineering of functional systems at the molecular scale. In its original sense, 'nanotechnology' refers to the projected ability to construct items from the bottom up, using techniques and tools being developed today to make complete, high performance products Semiconducting metal junction formed by two carbon nanotubes An engineered DNA strand 4
  5. 5. Nanomedicine 5
  6. 6. Definition Of Nanomedicine • • Nanomedicine is defined as the monitoring, repair, construction and control of human biological systems at the molecular level, using engineered nanodevices and nanostructures. The detection and controlled manipulation of human biological system at the molecular level via engineered nanodevices and/or nanostructures. nanostructures “An Engineered Nanodevice” 6
  7. 7. Why Nanomedicine ? 7 • Disease and ill health are caused largely by damage at the molecular and cellular level • Today’s surgical tools are huge and imprecise in comparison “Today’s surgery and surgical tools”
  8. 8. Outline Introduction to nanomedicine • Applications of nanomedicine • Advantages and disadvantages • Conclusion • 8
  9. 9. Application of Nanomedicine • Diagnostic Imaging and identification • Therapeutic Delivering medication to the exact location. Killing of bacteria, viruses & cancer cells Repair of damaged tissues. 9
  10. 10. Nanorobots • Nanorobots are nanodevices. • Very small in nano-dimensions. • To repair or detect targeted damages and infections. 10
  11. 11. “A microscopic machine roaming through the bloodstream, injecting or taking samples for identification and determining the concentrations of different compounds” 11
  12. 12. “A single inhaled Nanorobot reaches, deeply inspired into the lungs and attaches to the tissue surface” 12
  13. 13. “Mechanical drilling of a small tumor mass by a nanorobot” 13
  14. 14. Outline Introduction to nanomedicine • Applications of nanomedicine • Advantages and disadvantages • Conclusion • 14
  15. 15. Advantages of nano medicine • Drug delivery to the exact location. • Lesser side effects. • Molecular targeting by nano engineered devices • Detection is relatively easy. • No surgery required. • Diseases can be easily cured. 15
  16. 16. Disadvantages • Not practical yet. • High cost. • Implementation difficulties. 16
  17. 17. Outline Introduction to nanomedicine • Applications of nanomedicine • Advantages and disadvantages • Conclusion • 17
  18. 18. Conclusion •Although realization of the full potential of nanomedicine may be years or decades away, recent advances in nanotechnology-related drug delivery, diagnosis, and drug development are beginning to change the landscape medicine. •Nano therapies could, in the long term, be much more economical, effective and safe and could greatly reduce the cost of current medical procedures. •So, Nanomedicine is future medicine. 18
