Nanotechnology Shows Potential in Fighting Mesothelioma
Date:11/19/2013

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 19, 2013

One of the many potential breakthroughs involving the treatment of mesothelioma is the intriguing use of microscopic particles to attack cancer cells. According to its website, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is keeping a close eye on the possibility that nanotechnology can be used to help treat not only mesothelioma, but several other deadly diseases, reports Baron and Budd.

Nanotechnology is an emerging, and very broad, science with myriad applications. It is basically the study of how extremely small objects can be used in fields such as biology, chemistry, physics and medicine. These objects are anywhere from one to 100 nanometers – to put it in perspective, there are more than 25 million nanometers in an inch.

In terms of the potential use of nanotechnology in the treatment of mesothelioma and other cancers, researchers are studying ways of delivering drugs that can destroy cancer cells without affecting healthy cells nearby. The Langone Medical Center at New York University and the Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology in Singapore are two of the research facilities working on new methods of delivering anti-cancer drugs.

“More and more, we are seeing extremely exciting approaches to attacking not only mesothelioma, but other terrible diseases,” said Russell Budd, managing director of mesothelioma law firm Baron & Budd. “We applaud this continued research and salute the dedicated professionals who are working so tirelessly to bring hope to patients around the world.”

Baron & Budd is the sole sponsor of the book Understanding Mesothelioma, published by CURE Media Group.
