Setting the first steps for health-based nanobots, researchers have shown a simple micromotor that can move by itself inside the human body.
[...] When introduced into a mouse’s stomach, the micromotor swims to the stomach lining and delivers cargo.
The study is an important landmark, says Thomas E. Mallouk, who develops nanomotors and micromotors at Pennsylvania State University. It shows the potential of motorized particles to possibly improve the functions of nanoparticle drug carriers and imaging agents.
