Title:
Nanomagnetosols: magnetism opens up new perspectives for targeted aerosol delivery to the lung. 
Abstract:
A recent article in Nature Nanotechnology reports the guiding of aerosols to specific regions of the lung using an external magnetic field. This novel approach of nanomagnetic drug targeting is made feasible with aerosols that comprise magnetically responsive nanoparticles along with a drug of choice. This promising method could be used in the future to specifically accumulate effective drug doses in diseased lung regions and thus reduce undesired side effects.
