  • Applications of Cell Repair Machines

  • Limits and Feasibility of Cell Repair Machines

  • Nano Medicine

  • Respirocytes

  • Ongoing Research

  • Nano Horrors


Cell repair machines
Cell Repair Machines

  • Medical Nano Robots(Moleculartechnology and AI)

  • Will change medicine at its foundations

  • A system including nanocomputers and molecular scale sensors and tools, programmed to repair damage to cells and tissues

  • A fundamental break through : these machines will free medicine from the reliance of self repair as the only path to healing

  • Selective Destruction : example cancerous cells , recognize and destroy a specific kind of cell

  • Nature's own cell repair machines are limited in their ability


Features
Features

  • Size

    • micron scale robot with nano scale parts , parts would be from

      1 to 100 nm , the actual machine would be 0.5 to 3 microns

  • Bio Compatibility

    • Passive Diamond coating , because of its inert nature , not attacked by the immune system

  • Powering

    • Metabolize local glucose and oxygen for energy

    • Clinical environment acoustic energy

  • Communication

    • Broadcast acoustic type messages

    • Device similar to an Ultra Sound Probe

    • Acoustic sensors

    • Internal communication network


  • Navigation :

    • a navigational network with station keeping navigational elements providing high positional accuracy

    • Accurate positions could be reported to the physician using the internal communication network


Applications of cell repair machines
Applications of cell Repair Machines

  • Drug Delivery

    • Sophisticated ways

      • Target specific ,enable the use of lower doses of medicine

      • Side effects may be minimized and stronger medicine could be used

      • Trigger based , will release medicine when needed example Insulin delivery

  • Correcting Genetic Disorders

    • Comparing the strand of nucleotides segment by segment

    • Changing the nucleotides within a DNA so that it matches a correct pattern


  • Anesthesia plus

    • interrupting metabolism of the body for hours, days or years resulting in a condition of bio statis( a stoppage or stable state)

    • Bio statis provides deep anesthesia , thereby physicians can work for more time

    • Used in the case of emergencies

    • Can be achieved using molecular machines

      • Molecular machines injected into the blood stream enter each cell , block the molecular machinery for metabolism , the water is displaced using other molecular devices

    • Reversing bio statis

      • When it is time to wake up the patient , the process of resuscitation is started by the doctor , repair machines remove packing around molecules replace it with water and unblock the metabolic machinery

      • Astronauts as a one way travel


Establishing health
Establishing Health

  • State of health is established

    • Recognize the differences between the healthy tissue and the diseased tissue and rectify those differences

  • Immune system

    • the body’s immune system is limited in its capabilities

    • Immune machines :- Medical nano machines, which could be programmed to respond to anything encountered by the world of medicine .

  • Disease of Aging

    • Damaged molecular machinery

    • Misarranged structures , low enzymes


Limits and feasibility of cell repair machines
Limits and Feasibility of Cell Repair machines

  • Developing cell repair machines requires great effort ,knowledge and skill, tremendous development in Artificial Intelligence

  • An exact answer cannot be given to the question “ when will cell repair machines be available “

  • Loss of information through obliteration of structure imposes the most important fundamental limit to the repair of tissue



Nanomedicine
NanoMedicine

  • Nano medicine is an interdisciplinary field of science , even a simple project needs contributions from physicists, engineers , material chemists , biologist and end users such as an orthopedic surgeon

  • Molecular nano technology and molecular manufacturing are key enabling technologies

  • Analyzing and repairing human body just as we repair any other machine

  • Applications

    • Miniaturizing surgery

    • Tissue reconstruction

    • Eliminating all common diseases , all the medical pain and suffering


Respirocyte
Respirocyte

  • A proposed nano robot , artificial red blood cell

  • Of the order of 1 micron

  • Spherical nano robot made of 18 billion atoms

  • A pressure tank which can be pumped upto 9 billion Oxygen O2 and CO2 molecules

  • By the virtue of its pressure sensors it releases Oxygen or Carbon Dioxide

  • The bottom line is that mimics the action of hemoglobin filled red blood cells and can deliver 236 times more oxygen per unit volume than a natural red blood cell

  • Applications

    • Treatment of Anemia

    • Transfusions and perfusions

    • Fetal and Child Related disorders


On going research
On Going Research

Making Tiny Plastic Particles to deliver Lifesaving Medicine

  • Many medications such as therapeutic DNA, insulin and human growth hormone must enter the body through painful injections, but a Johns Hopkins researcher is seeking to deliver the same treatment without the sting

  • Justin Hanes an assistant professor at the Department of Chemical and BioMolecular Engineering wants to pack the drug into microscopic plastic spheres which can be inhaled

  • new type of porous polymer particles capable of releasing drugs in an environment resembling the deep lungs

Dna nanotechnology
DNA Nanotechnology

  • Self-Assembly of Metallic Nanoparticles Arrays by DNA Scaffolding.

    • This NSF-funded project is a done under the supervision of :

      • Profs. Richard Kiehl (Electrical Engineering)

      • Karin Musier-Forsyth (Chemistry),

      • Prof Nadrian Seeman (New York University).

    • The objective of this exciting multi-disciplinary research project is to use two-dimensional DNA crystals as a scaffolding for the self-assembly of arrays of metallic nanoparticles for the development of new electronic devices.


  • Chemical Imaging

    • University of Michigan

      • Raoul Kopelman , Ph.D student (Department Of Chemistry)

      • Optical nano sensors for real time chemical imaging of cellular membranes and intracellular processes , these sensors will monitor pH, calcium , magnesium , sodium , potassium , chloride , oxygen concentrations within the cells


Nano horrors
Nano Horrors

  • Self replicating Nano Robots

  • A threat to the existence of human beings
