The open access journal named "Cancer" just published a special issue on "Nanotechnology to cure cancer". I enjoyed reading this article:

on design of a special nanoconjugate for cancer nanotechnology applications. They are quite advanced in this field.

Check it out!

I did not enjoied the article because there is a serious problem with these new technologies. After the targetting the Gold nanopartciles do not disappear. They do not degrade , corrode or other.
They are considered foreign bodies by the body and there will be now or later a bad reaction.
Not only but for their tiny size they can have a direct contact with DNA. Epigenetic mechanisms can induce a silencing of genes and cancer.
This new technology cures cancer but they themselves can trigger a cancerogenic reaction.
The book Nanopathology the health impact of nanoparticles publòished by Pan Stanford show a presence of nanoscaled particles in the 800 cases examined.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
