Newly published research has identified how the immune system senses nanomedicines and triggers their elimination

In a newly published collaborative study in Nature Nanotechnology (, between Professor Moein Moghimi at Newcastle University, U.K., and a founding member of SMDG, a life sciences and biotechnology company, and researchers at the University of Colorado, the mechanism by which the human immune system recognizes and rejects nanoparticles has been deciphered to help researchers find more effective ways to deliver nanomedicines.
