The creation of hybrid nanomaterials based on graphite is highly significant for various uses, including biomedical, electrochemical, energy storage, therapeutic, optoelectronic, gas sensing and more. The use of graphene in the medical industry has inspired researchers to find uses for graphite-based nanomaterials in the delivery of drugs among graphitic-based materials.Using nanoparticles to deliver cancer drugs offers a way to hit tumors with large doses of drugs while avoiding the harmful side effects that often come with chemotherapy. However, so far, only a handful of nanoparticle-based cancer drugs have been FDA-approved.
Samsung Life Science Fund said on Wednesday that it would invest $15 million (19 billion won) in Senda Biosciences, a U.S. biotech company specializing in natural nanoparticle-based drug delivery technology, to develop next-generation biopharmaceuticals.
What are nanoparticles, and how can they be used? Nanoparticles are tiny objects. To give you an idea of the scale, we are talking about something that is 10-9 meters in size, the size of a nanoparticle relative to a football is the same as a football relative to the earth. These objects are very small, and their applications are various – and of course, they are around us in everyday life. For instance, they can be used as an anti-reflecting coating, in semiconductors, and, of course, they can be used in nanomedicine.
The findings of a large-scale screen could help researchers design nanoparticles that target specific types of cancer.
