Nanotechnology Wonders: Organ Healing with a Single Touch!
August 10, 2017
(News-Medical) – Scientists from the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Centre have come up with what sounds like a science fiction – a nanotechnology device that can switch the cell functions in such a way that the failing organs are revived using a single touch. This technique is called Tissue Nanotransfection (TNT) and the tiny nanotechnology devices inject a new genetic code into the skin cells. These genetically modified skin cells then transform into other types of cells that can help in the regeneration of the diseased cells. The study is published in the journal Nature Nanotechnology, authored by Daniel Gallego-Perez and team.
