Nano Dissolving

Researchers at the University of Liverpool are developing nanoparticle drug delivery methods that will enable lower drug dosing and might help discourage bacterial drug resistance. Using nanotechnology, researchers can fabricate pores in the structure of insoluble drugs, allowing more efficient drug delivery.
