Unlike our other centuries, the 21st century is known for non-communicable diseases age. Most of the people who die is due to a non-communicable disease such as AIDS, Cancer, etc. It is so common that it is believed than one in every five people is in danger of getting a non-communicable disease. Scientists and the doctors have done so many experiments to come up with an cure to this type of diseases. one of the best invention in medical history to prevent or heal people from AIDS and cancer is the nanotechnology.
What is nano-technology?
Nanotechnology ("nanotech") is manipulation of matter on an atomic, molecular, and supramolecular scale. ... It is therefore common to see the plural form "nanotechnologies" as well as "nanoscale technologies" to refer to the broad range of research and applications whose common trait is size.
Nanotechnology's role in HIV AIDS treatment
Numerous nanotechnology in healthcare research efforts deal with diagnosing and fighting the Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) that causes AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome). Nanotechnology offers a unique opportunity to combine and improve different pharmacological profiles of antiretroviral drugs, with more convenient drug administration and potentially better patient adherence to HIV therapy.
This could also be a huge part of the benefits that result from nanotechnology in developing countries, where the so called ‘big three’ diseases (HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis) are responsible for millions of deaths.
