When Chemo Fails! Nanotechnology Is Introduced

Daksh [19]

Abstract: In this article we picturised at the failure of chemotherapy in cancer treatment and how nanotechnology can be used as an alternative to chemotherapy. Main cause of Chemotherapy failure is the development of Resistance against Multiple drugs (i.e. MDR) that are used to treat cancer cells. Another supportive point in the failure of chemotherapy is absence of targeted actions, drug toxicity, harmful to healthy cells, etc. (7) To overcome these there is the introduction of nanotechnology. Nanotechnology can be defined as the Branch of science that deals in the study of manufacturing and use of small size particles (10?? m) for adjustment of molecules and substances at the nanoscale level (10) Nanoparticles used for the delivery of drugs are called Nanomedicines (6). Nanomedicines are the evolution of Chemo Medicine, in that form where it just keeps the drug safe inside the outer sheath which releases these chemicals on targeted cells.

Keywords: chemo, chemotherapy, MDR, multi drug resistance, ABC transporter
