Wirkstoffe auf freien Fuss setzen mit Nanoshuttles

In der Zukunft koennten wenige Millionstel Millimeter grosse Nanofaehren Wirkstoffe oder auch Gene in Zellen schleusen. Derartige Therapien haetten den Vorteil, dass der Wirkstoff keine Nebenwirkungen auf dem Weg durch den Organismus ausloesen kann. Der therapeutische Effekt entfaltet sich erst am Ziel, sodass etwa auch toxische Krebsmedikamente in der Chemotherapie relativ niedrig dosiert werden koennen.
