Pharmacy and technologies are in close relationship with each other. New advancements are under discovery to improve health care in this modern world of technology and innovation.
Pharmacogenomics and Technology
Everybody is different genetically and metabolically. Pharmacy needs to get ready for the transformation of medicines into genetic oriented therapy. Genomics lets us receive medications according to our genetic data. Patients can upload their genetic data on a website and receive medications according to our genetic data. Patients can upload their genetic data on websites and receive special medications for themselves rather than a broad range of medications that are manufactured for millions of people. DNA sequencing is the most modern technique nowadays.
This is a revolutionary method of developing organs, tissues and drugs. FDA approved the first drug printed out with the 3D printer in 2015. The liver tissue has been developed for drug toxicity testing which hinders the use of animals in the laboratory. The imagination of getting a blueprint of customised drug in a custom dosage related to genomic background can change the whole pharmaceutical industry development procedures for medicines.
Nano technology refers to microscopic technology that is of scale between 1 to 100 nanometers. Nano capsules are delivered to target cancer cells at the site of the cancer. Nano technology is advancing to develop Nano Robots which are taken in the form of pills and destroy cancer cells, perform surgical tasks internally. They can also send data to the physician via synced data delivery system.
