Nanotechnology and cancer – 4
Narrator: This is NIH Health Matters. I’m Joe Balintfy. Nanotechnology has the potential to detect cancer and deliver treatment in ways unimagined before.
Barker: For example, we have breakthroughs that I think are going to be coming fairly quickly in imaging.
Narrator: Dr. Anna Barker is with the National Cancer Institute.
Barker: We don't want to over promise, but we want to make sure that we’re communicating about it regularly because we are doing everything we can to make sure that these approaches are safe for patients, but also they get to patients as effectively and as efficiently as we possibly can.
Narrator: For more about nanotechnology, micro-machines 50-thousand times smaller than a human hair, visit the website nano.cancer.gov. Health Matters is produced by the National Institutes of Health, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
