Someday you will take a pill that will fix your body. Sounds like science fiction and, though not yet science fact, it is a tantalizing potential presented by a breakthrough in nano technology and biomedicine from researchers in the U.S., Denmark and Rome. Nanorobots that can deliver and release biomolecules based on temperature.
Built from molecules, this “DNA Nanocage” (sounds cool because it is) was designed by researchers, but self-assembled from the human “body’s own molecules.” The hope, while far off, is that the Nanocages could be ingestible in pill form, containing medicine to effectively trap diseases or cancers at the molecular level.
