NANOTECHNOLOGY UPDATE: Researchers make magnetic nanoparticles that can latch on to harmful molecules and purge them from the blood. “The project involves magnetized nanoparticles that are coated with carbon and studded with antibodies specific to the molecules the researchers want to purge from the blood: inflammatory proteins such as interleukins, or harmful metals like lead, for example. By adding the nanomagnets to blood, then running the blood through a dialysis machine or similar device, the researchers can filter out the unwanted compounds.”

Faster, please.
