Nanomedicine is the Applications of nanotechnology for treatment, diagnosis, monitoring, and control of biological systems as per National Institutes of Health. Research into the rational delivery and targeting of pharmaceutical, therapeutic, and diagnostic agents is at the forefront of projects in nanomedicine. Applications to medicine and physiology imply materials and devices designed to interact with the body at subcellular (i.e., molecular) levels with a high degree of specificity. This can potentially translate into targeted cellular and tissue specific clinical applications designed to achieve maximal therapeutic affects with less side effects. This article presents a brief review of Nanomedicine with an emphasis on its various aspects associated i.e. introduction, definition, medical and clinical application especially in drug delivery,diagnosis, targeting, cancer, neurology, nephrology, cvs, respiratory diseases etc.
Key words:Nanomedicine, nanotechnology, nanoparticles, drug delivery.
Nanomedicine is the medicinal diligence of nanotechnology (is the branch of engineering that deals with things smaller than 100 nanometers (especially with the manipulation of individual molecules)). The range of Nanomedicine from medical applications of nano-materials (is a field that takes a materials science-based approach to nanotechnology. It studies materials with morphological features on the nanoscale, and especially those that have special properties stemming from their nanoscale dimensions) to nano-electronic ((physics) the use of nanotechnology to create electronic components) biosensor (is an analytical device for the detection of an analyte that combines a biological component with a physicochemical detector component). The range can also be possible for future applications of molecular nanotechnology (a technology based on the ability to build structures to complex, atomic specifications by means of mechanosynthesis).
