Abstract

Nanotechnology uses very small molecular and intracellular structures ranging from 1 to 100-nanometer in size to create, employ and qualify materials and devices. It is a well-established branch of science having significant applications in wide range of medicine. It has wide usage in pharmaceutics for targeted delivery of drugs and genes into cells. Various targeted procedures in the animal body have been accomplished using nano instruments, especially nano-robotics. Scientific bodies have also set the status of nanomedicine in health fields especially neurological and cancerous antidotes. Thus, nanoparticles of extremely small size have vast prominence in almost all medical fields for facilitating mankind.
