Nanomedicine is an a steadily increasing research activity in this areaimportant and rapidly growing field, which is over the past decade.emerging from the application of nanotechnology The present document focuses onto healthcare. Nanomedicine can offer impressive nanobiotechnology applications in medicine, whichresolutions for various life threatening diseases in in the last two years are referred to aschild (nano drug addicted next generation). “nanomedicine”, a term that will also be used in this document. There are many ways of definingKeywords – DNA, Nanomedicine, nanoparticles, nanomedicine. Nanomedicine is the application ofnanotubes, nanobiosensor, nanorobotics, nanotechnology to health. It exploits the improvednanomaterials and often novel physical, chemical, and biological properties of materials at the nanometric scale. InI. INTRODUCTION contrast to the often used limitation to size Nanotechnology is emerging as one of the dimensions of 1-100 nm, in nanomedicine sizekey technologies of the 21st century and is expected dimensions of 1-1000 nm are included. This is dueto enable developments across a wide range of to the fact that in medicine nanotechnology aims tosectors that can benefit citizens and improve improve and optimize material properties for theirindustrial competitiveness. There is as yet no interaction with cells and tissue, to allow e.g.common definition of nanotechnology. The passive tumour targeting, crossing of the blood-nanometer scale is usually set at 1 to 100 nm and brain barrier, or to improve the bioavailability.
