Microrobots show promising results in mice – could this be the future of medical treatment in humans?

In this latest report, Compass Life Sciences examines how micro and nano robots have shown promising results in recent trials and how they could potentially be used for medical purposes in the future. 

The report discusses the following points in further detail:

  • A recent study at University of California San Diego have developed microscopic robots, called microrobots, that can swim around in the lungs, deliver medication, and be used to clear up life-threatening cases of bacterial pneumonia. These were recently tested in mice and safely eliminated pneumonia-causing bacteria in the lungs and resulted in 100% survival.
  • This report examines what exactly nano and micro robots are, the evolution of them, how they work, and what it means for future research in the life sciences industry.
  • The overall study results from the University of California San Diego and what this means for the future
  • The limitations from current research with the use of nano and microrobots but how bacteria could have an advantage with advances with using this.
