Abstract

The next generation nanomedicine technologies to provide single-cell diagnostics and therapeutics were discussed. These technologies employs a cell-by-cell regenerative and repair philosophy working at the single cell level rather than at the organ level. Nanomedicine performs nanosurgery inside living cells and either perform repairs or induce those cells to die through apoptosis. The ultimate aim of the nanomedicine was to combine diagnostics and therapeutics into real-time medicine, using where possible in-vivo cytometry techniques for diagnostics and therapeutics.
