Development of improved pH sensitive nanocrystals for super-efficient delivery of therapeutic gene and anticancer drug to breast cancer

I think we can relate to nanotechnology through movies like terminator which talks about nonomorphs which can repair our body, but we are not there yet. We are now able to control matter at nanoscale. On this nanoplatform we incorporate anticancer drug and inject into blood to make it to cancer tissue. There are potential barriers to success you need to ensure it doesn’t attack healthy cells and only attack diseased cells. We have achieved to improve our nanoparticle targeting ability to ensure nanoparticle doesn’t go to site where it is not supposed to go so targeting mechanism is precise and efficient.
