Dozens of Nanobiotech-Based Drugs, Tests are in the Works

Think nanomedicine applications are just a pipe dream for future generations? Think again. NanoBiotech News has reported on no less than 35 nanotech-based cancer drugs and diagnostic tests currently under development just during the last six months.

A few of the intriguing headlines include:

  • Immunicon, R&D Systems pact targets development of new cancer detection tools
  • Abraxane comes through with proof of superiority, scientific endorsements
  • Nanocapsules may offer safe, efficient delivery for tumor-targeting biopharmaceuticals
  • Heat activated nanoparticles attack tumors from outside in
  • Crossing the blood-brain barrier: nanoparticle drug delivery system targets cancer therapeutics to tumors
  • Quantum dots being developed for cancer detection, heart disease
  • Hot nanoshells wipe out cancerous cells, leave healthy ones intact
  • Nanobacterium identified in ovarian cancer patients
  • Intel teams with Fred Hutchinson to study nanobiotech applications in cancer
  • NanoBio spins off NanoCure to commercialize new cancer treatment
  • Gold nanoparticles 'tag' breast cancer tumor cells in laser technique
  • Korean scientists developing novel nano-sized cancer drugs
  • Nanoengineered silicon being developed as prostate cancer treatment
  • German clinical trial tests nanoparticle therapy on brain cancer
  • Quantum dots provide improved method for cancer metastases diagnosis

And that's just cancer. Nanotechnology, biotechnology, pharmaceutical and medical device firms are delving into a plethora of studies around the world based on nanobiotechnology for diseases and conditions ranging from Alzheimer's to reversing paralysis from spinal cord injuries.

Industry observers and participants alike can stay on top of the nascent field by reading NanoBiotech News weekly.
