The latter are the domain of nanotechnology, where current advances are offering applications for medicine. ” Homeostasis is defined as the stable state controlled by a system of feedback: the system reacts to changes sensed in its state and/or environment to counter influences that tend to destabilize it or divert its development from the normal path. For example, body temperature, blood pressure, levels of carbon dioxide in the lungs and tissues, and the osmotic pressure within cells are homeostatically regulated.
S. National Nanotechnology Initiative with initial funding of over US$400 million in 2000, annual spending in nanotechnology as of 2006 had reached US$750 million in Japan, US$710 million in the Unites States, US$335 million in Europe, and US$551 million in China, Korea, and Taiwan together [6,7]. The economic impact of nanotechnology is great because it opens breakthrough paths around technological bottlenecks and impasses faced by key technologies underlying development. Some of the first and most important areas to be affected are energy efficiency, green energy production, and elimination of carbon emissions through nanotechnology innovations in tribology, catalysts, energy conversion, photovoltaics, artificial photosynthesis, photoelectric hydrogen generation, hydrogen storage, battery electrodes, hypercapacitors, lightweight smart materials for vehicles and motor components, artificial muscles, and high efficiency improvement to conventional motor designs.
Another strategy for triggering release is functionalizing the surfaces of nanoparticles with antibodies to localize the particles in tumors or other targeted tissue, then stimulating release of drugs, or heating up the particles by application of electromagnetic radiation or light. Even the body’s own blood cells can be adapted to carry nanomedicines: nanoparticulate steroids have been introduced into red blood cells; as the cells die their natural deaths, the steroids are released into the body in very small doses, thus minimizing side effects.
