A Nanorobotic Approach for Aiding Alzheimers Disease
M. Anju Rajan
Abstract: Nanorobotics is a field which is changing vision of pharmaceutical and medical sciences. The conventional drug delivery systems do not provide cyto-architectural restoration and connection patterns that are crucial for functional recovery in neurodegenerative disorders due to limitations posed by the restrictive Blood-Brain Barrier (BBB). Nerveborne nanorobots carry and deliver drugs to affected neuronal cells crossing the BBB. Manipulation of nanorobots is extensively carried out to treat Alzheimer’s Disease where there is destruction of neuronal cells. They are used to restore the functions of oligodendrocytes due to demyelination of neurons in white mater. The aim of this article is to present the future use of nanorobots to combat Alzheimer's Disease.
