Nanomedicine allows targeted drug delivery in such a way that the bioactive component(s) can act at their full potential exactly where the source of illness has to be combatted. BioNanoNet supports the development of medical applications to improve therapeutic effects and reduce and minimize the side effects for the individual. In addition to the immense value for each patient, the targeted medical therapy significantly reduces the amount of active ingredients that must be used in order to achieve the same or, in the best case, a higher efficiency.
In addition, through preventive medicine (which is supported by the BioNanoNet) an important socioeconomic value can be reached. This is also due to the fact that the need for expensive therapies can be reduced through the early detection of serious diseases (such as cancer) by means of nano-medically optimized diagnostic processes. The chances of recovery for the people affected by the disease can also be significantly improved.
