Are you aware that although mortality rate in a number of cancers has come down significantly but in the case of ovarian cancer it has remained the same for the last five decades? We all know that Nanotechnology has been transforming the manufacturing sector but now it is the turn of the healthcare sector to benefit from it. Researchers at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago believe that nanotechnology could be put to use in diagnosing and treating ovarian cancer. They are working towards improving the health of the women and for this purpose are collaborating with Argonne National Laboratory and the Illinois Institute of Technology. Nanotechnology could be used for detecting ovarian cancer in the early stages by making use of highly sensitive imaging tools and development of drug carriers which could deliver therapeutic agents inside the tumor. Nanotechnology could be effective in the case of ovarian cancer as diagnosis of this type of cancer requires the detection and characterization of small quantities of biomarker and therefore it could be quite effective.
