A method has been developed for the interaction of nanoparticles with human biomolecules

Nanoparticulate drugs are likely to be more effective than current treatments. However

there are complications due to which the fields of application of these particles are limited to research laboratories.

In order to solve this problem, the authorsThe work presented a unique combination of microscopic methods that allows a more detailed examination of the biological effects that occur when using nanoparticles.

The researchers' methods allowed them to see important differences between particles exposed and not exposed to human plasma.

It's all about the so-called biological bits:they attach to the nanoparticle, creating a coating called a corona (not to be confused with a new type of coronavirus). This crown contains information on how nanoparticles interact with patient molecules.

The authors of the work believe that these particles canwork as diagnostic tools, not drugs. Rather than trying to cure diseases with nanomedicine, the particles are well suited for early detection of diseases, in particular cancer and neurodegenerative diseases.
