The Market for Nanotechnology in Drug Delivery in 2021 – Nanocarriers vs Drug Nanocrystals

There are two different approaches to Nanotechnology in Drug Delivery,  making drug crystals smaller to increase solubility and bioavailability, or using some form of carrier to deliver them in a more effective manner. If we look at the total market size in 2021, it is a 60/40 split in favour of drug nano crystals although we feel that developing new delivery mechanisms …

Resuscitating Dead Cells and Tissues: Progress in The Adoption of Nanotechnology in Regenerative Medicine and Tissue Engineering

Each time an individual suffers a heart attack and survives, unfortunately something happens to the heart permanently: some of the cells that constitute this organ die. Those cells can be: Cardiomyocytes (striated muscle cells found in the heart, derived from cardiac myoblasts); Neurons (in the wall of the heart). These dead tissues give to the heart muscles weakening. Consequently, the …

Nanotech and Formula One – Is It Legal?

At last weeks Nanotechnology for High performance Motorsport meeting, one of the participants, from a Formula One team, commented that he thought the current FIA regulations precluded the use of nanomaterials. A bit of digging around in the current regulations (thanks to Chris Walker for unearthing this) only finds the following prohibition on using carbon nanotubes incorporated within carbon fibres, although …

Why Nanotechnology Is NOT The “New Asbestos”

A recent poll by the UK charity the Mental Health Foundation found that 77% of people found the world more frightening than in 1999, and put some of the blame on the “worst-case-scenario language” sometimes used by politicians, pressure groups, businesses and public bodies. It does seem to be true that to get any kind of (media) attention you have …
