Ontology

In recent years, much effort has been undertaken to develop controlled vocabularies and scientific ontologies in biomedical fields.

Terminology standardisation and data handling are both included as informatics components, which are essential to nanotechnology data-sharing and interdisciplinary communication. They enable easier data and protocol storage, information retrieval and modelling of data output.

Nanomedicine

Nanomedicine is defined as the application of nanotechnology in view of making a medical diagnosis or treating or preventing diseases. It exploits the improved and often novel physical, chemical and biological properties of materials at nanometre scale.

Nanomedicine

Nanomedicine, the application of nanotechnology to human healthcare, offers numerous potential pathways to improving medical diagnosis and therapy and even to regenerate tissues and organs. It can provide personalised yet more affordable healthcare while at the same time offering an improved quality of life for everyone.

Nanomedicines

Nanomedicines: The European Medicines Agency has established a working definition of nanomedicines defined as purposely designed systems for clinical applications [with] at least one component at nano-scale size [and] resulting in definable specific properties and characteristics. [Nanomedicines] are related to the specific technology application and characteristics for the intended use (route of admin, dose), associated with the expected clinical advantages of the nano-engineering (e.g. preferential organ/tissue distribution) and needs to meet definition as a medicinal product according to European legislation.
