Abstract: Nano, as in nanotechnology, nanobiology, nanomedicine, refers to phenomena at the nanometer or molecular level. A nanometer (nm) is one-billionth of 1 m, which is an extremely small linear measurement. To put this in perspective, a typical human hair is 100,000 nm in diameter. An adenovirus is 90-nm wide. Evolution of this technology has revolutionalized and opened many new gateways in medical research, therapeutic applications and newer perspectives. This article is a compilation of references and is written with a view to provide a basic idea and to expose scientific personnel to this promising and advance technology in combination with medicine.
