New nontoxic nano-particle can detect earliest stages of any disease

nanoparticle could help detect many diseases earlyNanotechnology is rapidly taking over the field of medical sciences.

The effective anti-viral, antibacterial, and anti-fungal hydrogen peroxide can also be used for anthrax decontamination, and thus, its presence in your body is significant, as when large amounts of it comes in contact with the lungs or eyes, it is poisoning.

Besides, cells are believed to over-produce hydrogen peroxide at the early stages of most diseases. With no available imaging techniques for capturing its processing in the body, the development of a disease cannot be determined.

But now, you can easily shrug off the worries for the required right amount of the liquid in the body – thanks to nanotechnology.

It is for the first time, scientists have created a nano-particle that can detect and image even trace-amounts of hydrogen peroxide in animals!
But, it is natural for patients to fear of how safe the nano-particles are.

The scientists have completely rejected its being toxic by any means.

Thus, the diagnostic clinic can now completely rely on this new nano-technology-based technique both as a simple as well as all-purpose diagnostic tool, needed for detecting any disease’s earliest stages involving ‘chronic inflammations’ like cancer, Alzheimer’s, heart disease, arthritis any many other.
