The Future: Targeting Bone-Cracks With Drug-Carrying Nanoparticles

Take a look at the future for osteoporosis drug therapy. Research into drug delivery systems is hot, especially in the arena of nanotechnology. In a series of studies based at Penn State University and Boston University, researchers used self-powered nanoparticles to deliver medication (alendronate) right to the doorsteps of bone cracks themselves. Molecules moving inside [...]
