A new nanotechnology to precisely control the size, shape and composition of drug particles, coupled with an innovative spray system, may allow for more precise and targeted delivery of drugs and biologic medications, according to researcher Joseph DeSimone of the University of North Carolina. The combination of nanoparticles with the new coating process, which is owned by Svaya Nanotechnologies and was developed by MIT professor Paula Hammond, a member of AIChE's board of directors, provides "control and reproducibility," DeSimone said.
