Nanomedicine engineering or nanotechnology applications for medical purposes uses nano-materials to diagnose, monitor, control, prevent and treat diseases. the students who are graduated in pharmaceutical nanotechnology which is one of the interdisciplinary specialties in medical category, after completing their studies work in the field of health, treatment, education and research with the help of nanotechnology.
Today, nanomedicine engineering has a very special application in manufacturing medicines. In fact, the medicines made with this type of engineering technology examine the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and the examination of organs and tissues on a molecular scale. In other words, by improving the properties and creating new drug compounds, engineering, cell biology, biomaterials, chemistry, etc. can improve the effectiveness of the required drug.
What is nano-medicine?
Before any further explanation, we are going to look at nanotechnology and nanobiotechnology. Nanomedicine and nanotechnology are branches of engineering that involve the development and application of materials and devices for the study of biological processes and the treatment of diseases at the level of single molecules and atoms. It also involves the manipulation of nanoscale materials to achieve superior performance in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of diseases.
In other words, the medicines manufactured by this technology are more effective in improving diseases and symptoms. One of the leading nanotechnology-based medicines in the treatment of iron deficiency, anemia is Reol. In the rest of the article, we are going to get more familiar with the technology of making Reol medicine by nano-engineering technology.
Research on nanomedicine includes subcellular imaging, nanoscale separation devices, Nano sensors, and nanoparticle-based application platforms. These technologies are specifically focused on intervening and diagnosing disease processes, such as, cancer, kidney-related diseases, and neurodegenerative diseases.
Purposes of nanomaterial application in medicines
Nanomedicine engineering can be used in nanomedicine and the application of drug for medical purposes are in three different fields: diagnosis (Nano diagnosis), controlled drug delivery (nano therapy), and regenerative medicine.
A new field that combines diagnosis and treatment, and offers a promising approach that includes accurate diagnosis and treatment of the disease is called Theragnostics. Theranostics is in fact the science of using nano systems in a subject therapy and concurrent imaging in disease treatment.
Nanomedicine engineering has introduced promising changes in clinical practice with the introduction of new medicines, such as, Reol for both diagnosis and treatment, which are very effective in treating anemia. One of the mechanisms of this type of medicine is the integration of molecules that otherwise cannot be used due to their high level of toxicity.
Utilizing multiple mechanisms of application and maximizing effectiveness, for example by increasing bioavailability is another benefit of Nano technically engineered medicines.
Nanomedicine engineering in Reol and its benefits
As mentioned above, Reol is a nano-engineered medicine that is prescribed to treat anemia and improve its symptoms. These medicines work mainly on target cells and can minimize the side effects of taking them.
In fact, Reol is highly adaptable to the body and is well absorbed. In nanotechnology, extraordinary methods are used to increase the effectiveness of medicines and reduce its side effects. Other benefits of Reol medicine made with this technology include:
– Rapid efficacy of the medicine and increased solubility
One of the major benefits of nanomedicine-engineered medicines, such as, Reol is its rapid efficacy in treating the disease. The technology of encapsulation and thus the speed of dissolution of the substance in body fluids can be considered the most important reason for this high efficiency.
Besides increasing the effectiveness of Reol, its dosage is also reduced, thus minimizing unwanted side effects in the body. This is especially important for those who are having trouble taking iron supplements.
– Higher targeting
Another advantage of making Reol by nano-engineering is that it increases the effectiveness of the medicine relative to its dosage. The use of nano in pharmacy reduces the overall need of the body to use these medicines and as a result, in addition to lowering the cost, its side effects are also reduced.
– Controlled delivery of medicine to the target organ
One of the important applications of nanotechnology is the delivery of medicine to the target organ with the help of various carriers. In fact, the formulation of these medicines, like Reol is such that by taking it, the whole body will be affected and the symptoms will improve faster. This will increase the patient’s efficiency and comfort due to controlling the rate of medicine release in the body.
Cost-effectiveness of the drug
Today, new medicines and therapies, such as, nano-effective medicines are available at a reasonable cost. Reol is no exception to this rule and despite its high quality, it is marketed at a reasonable price.
It can be said that the aging of the population, the increase in the price of medicines and treatments, and the inefficient use of medical services are to some extent responsible for the constant increase in costs. However, the main factor responsible for high health care costs is chronic diseases, such as, cancer and diabetes, and the worldwide epidemic rate that will lead to the health care costs.
Chronic illnesses physically, emotionally, and financially overwhelm the patients, but they also have a significant impact on society in terms of health care costs – the loss of income for patients and caregivers. Rising medicine costs are leading to increasing the pressure on improving the efficiency of public health care services, which should encourage health policymakers and managers to adopt more efficient methods, such as, nanomedicine engineering.
Nanomedicine engineering, which is used to make Reol and similar medicines is expanding and can dramatically improve its pharmacological properties. With this technology, a targeted drug delivery can be achieved, and by consuming lower dosages and thus reducing its side effects, the patient can see increasing comfort.
