Nanomedicine

The term Nano medicine encompasses a broad range of technologies and materials. Types of Nanomaterials that have been investigated for use as drugs, drug carriers or other Nonmedical agents. There has been steep growth in development of devices that integrate Nanomaterials or other Nanotechnology. The nanotechnology-based medical devices market is categorized into three major segments, namely, therapeutic applications, diagnostics applications, and research applications. Rising incidence of lifestyle and age-related disorders (such as cardiovascular and hearing disorders) has contributed significantly to the growth of the nanotechnology-based active implantable devices market. Nanotechnology, or systems/device manufacture at the molecular level, is a multidisciplinary scientific field undergoing explosive development. The genesis of Nanotechnology can be traced to the promise of revolutionary advances across medicine, communications and genomics. On the surface, miniaturization provides cost effective and more rapidly functioning  biological components. Less obvious though is the fact that Nanometer sized objects also possess remarkable self-ordering and assembly behaviors under the control of forces quite different from macro objects.
