Technology is taking the world by storm. Its pace of growth is vibrant at the current moment and it is taken strides to become a staple in Medicine. With the advancement of the knowledge and overall understanding of nanotechnology, we set to understand the idea that in the coming years, it will be a leader in helping to excel Cellular Research for Major Diseases. The pursuit of this objective stems from a profound interest in cell research and the repair of such cells.
The hypothesis was an overall consensus that nanotechnology would immediately impact cell tissue repair. That this alley would be its gateway into medicine. Researchers of the SENS Research Foundation developed a Nano hemostatic agent that would have the ability to stop bleeding. These researchers were able to demonstrate that hemostasis was obtainable in multiple areas using a independent peptide. They showed for the first time that hemorrhaging could be slowed and stopped by nanotechnology. In another area of nanotechnology, researchers under the guidance of also researcher and author, Michael Berger, have made strides to Cancer cell repair. They have experimented with cells that experience apoptosis, which is the process of cells committing suicide, and found a ‘nanotechnology-based approach to provide a small molecule by-product of a water chlorination process.’ This molecule has created great success for these researchers in proving to repair the cancer suicide mechanism in cells. With development, this could lead to great improvement in treatment of cellular repair.
With medicine discovery on the steady incline, nanotechnology is on the brink of breaking through its ‘glass ceiling’ and shocking health as a whole. Its value is beyond belief.
