Mohali INST scientists develop new nano-particle-based treatment for kala azar
Scientists from the Institute of Nano Science and Technology (INST), Mohali, have recently developed a nano-medicine by combining different compounds for combating the disease. This medicine will act as a relief for Kala azar patients, as it is a major tropical disease which is one of the most neglected disease in the tropical areas. According to medical literature, Kala Azar is a disease in which a parasites migrates into the internal organs of the host and if left untreated, almost results in the death of the host. INST scientists have developed an oral nano-medicine with the help of surface-modified solid lipid nano-particles-based combinational system for treating the disease.
