Nanoscience, represented in films like Iron Man 3 and The Fantastic Voyage, left cinema screens to become reality, for example, the research of new drugs to treat diabetes, chronic pain, nausea, hypertension and contraceptives. In 1940, the scientist Albert Sabin, creator of the polio vaccine, has researched the use of gold nanoparticles in the treatment of rheumatism.

The advanced technology will allow patients no longer need to take medication in the form of tablets or injections. Already on the market transdermal medicines, administered by direct application or by adhesives that release a substance constantly. The main advantage is to eliminate or reduce the side effects.

In a short time we will not need to take anything orally. In the future everyone will be transdermal medications. When the person is a headache, will pass the drug on the temple and the pain will improve. In the future, will not need to swallow a medicine, explains professor of biotechnology at the Federal Institute of Education, Science and Technology of Ceará, Marco Botelho.

According to Botelho, studies for the application of insulin in patients with diabetes obviate the use of needle to give way to remedy patch. The treatment of tumors can also be benefited through the use of intelligent drugs in much smaller doses, which recognize and attack the diseased tissue directly. All this is the result of nanotecologia explained.

The advancement in science studies also pioneered the nanocosmetics. Currently, the business sector already offers products wrinkle filler microparticles through rejuvenation, sunscreen makeup with more powerful and distinctive sheen.

The Brazilian Innovation Agency - FINEP old - has underway a public call for R $ 30 million for the development of innovative products or processes. The publication dedicated to nanotechnology provides $ 8 million in research in personal hygiene, perfumery and cosmetics.

According to the coordinator of micro and nanotechnologies of the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MCTI), Flávio Plentz, Brazil is the second largest market for cosmetics and personal care products in the world. It is an area of ​​great success. We have several companies producing and marketing products in the area nanocosmetics. Has many active research groups and is an area that has significant economic impact analyzes.

In the country, the group Apothecary invests 2.5% of its annual turnover on research in nanotechnology. The company works with studies in the sector since 2002 and already has the market anti-aging products and sunscreens that work in reducing wrinkles.

With the evolution of research, we also pioneering the triplananotecnologia, which is called the differential targeted release, or tiny particles of active ingredients penetrate the different layers of the skin according to the need of each of them, says director Research and Development Group, Richard Schwarzer.
