ABSTRACT

This work presents a new approach with details on the integrated platform and hardware architecture for nanorobots application in epidemic control, which should enable real time in vivo prognosis of biohazard infection. The recent developments in the field of nanoelectronics, with transducers progressively shrinking down to smaller sizes through nanotechnology and carbon nanotubes, are expected to result in innovative biomedical instrumentation possibilities, with new therapies and efficient diagnosis methodologies. The use of integrated systems, smart biosensors, and programmable nanodevices are advancing nanoelectronics, enabling the progressive research and development of molecular machines. It should provide high precision pervasive biomedical monitoring with real time data transmission. The use of nanobioelectronics as embedded systems is the natural pathway towards manufacturing methodology to achieve nanorobot applications out of laboratories sooner as possible. To demonstrate the practical application of medical nanorobotics, a 3D simulation based on clinical data addresses how to integrate communication with nanorobots using RFID, mobile phones, and satellites, applied to long distance ubiquitous surveillance and health monitoring for troops in conflict zones. Therefore, the current model can also be used to prevent and save a population against the case of some targeted epidemic disease.

Mentions: Nanorobots using chemical sensors as embedded nanoelectronics can be programmed to detect different levels of alpha-NAGA signals. Based on clinical analysis, the alpha-NAGA proteins are well established as medical targets for early stages of influenza development [16]. Nanorobots as mobile medical devices injected through the bloodstream are used in our study; the medical 3D environment comprises historical clinical data of blood flow patterns and morphological parameters from patients with influenza virus (Figs. 6 and 7). The behaviour used by influenza to cell invasion and fusion is quite similar with tactics also used by other viruses, like Smallpox or SARS. The proposed platform with nanorobot prototype as a quite effective architecture applied to influenza prognosis, can also address a broad range of biohazard defense possibilities, therefore providing a new virus fighting technology.
