Has the field of nanomedicine matured?

Created on 07/11/2012 10:49 By Tom Webster

I am often asked if nanomedicine has matured.

I am never sure how to answer that question since many nanomaterials are currently used in medicine, from drug delivery to imaging to orthopedic devices. The recent announcement of expanded FDA anti-infection claims for a silicone nitride spinal device with unique nanofeatures, again, reminds me that, yes, nanomedicine has matured.
