By clearing toxins from our blood stream, our red blood cells ensure we stay healthy. However, just like human beings, absorbing too big of a dose of toxins will also kill the cells, which then leads to our own demise. Thankfully, there is a new solution to aid our hardworking cells in their endeavor.
Researchers at John Hopkins University developed nano-particles that will perform "detoxifying" of our bloodstream. The principle behind these particles is coating them in a biomimicking membrane. Also known as biomimetic membranes, the thin film is stripped from red blood cells then applied to the nano-particles, disguising them as red blood cells.
After their costumes are on, the particles are injected into the bloodstream and will absorb any toxic substance to avoid as much damage as possible to healthy blood cells.
Could this be the cure to any disease?
