Hunter's comment

''''Scientists have created miniature magnetic swimming devices – which mimic the appearance of sperm cells – that could revolutionize disease treatment by swimming drugs to specific areas of the body."

We normally intake medicines for diseases by oral or by injection. Where ever the disease in our body we used to do take medicines as above. Scientists from the University of Exeter developed micromagnetic devices which take medicines to a specific location in our body, the affected part of the body. The microdevices are simulated with a specific magnetic field and drug delivery is done directly to the affected area which improves treatment and success.
Swimmers to the size of red blood cells are successfully demonstrated by the researchers.
Development of this technology changes the way do medicine in our long way of life.
