Tracking nanoparticles could help in developing treatment for pulmonary disease

Using a real-time imaging system, scientists have tracked a group of near-infrared fluorescent nanoparticles from the airspaces of the lungs into the body and out again, providing a description of the characteristics and behavior of the particles that could be used in developing therapeutic agents to treat pulmonary disease. The findings could also offer a greater understanding of the health effects of air pollution.
