Abstract

With the advent of Nanotechnology, the prospects have rapidly improved for using nanomaterials in medical imaging, disease diagnoses, drug delivery, cancer treatment, gene therapy, and other areas. Nanomedicine is the application of nanotechnologies to the maintenance and improvement of human life. Nanosystems (nanoliposomes, quantum dots, nanoparticles, dendrimers) have a vast potential in these areas, and novel applications are being actively explored.
