In a recent presentation to FDA, David Rejeski, Director of the Woodrow Wilson Center’s Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies, stated “there are currently 130 nano-based drugs and delivery systems and 125 biomedical devices in preclinical, clinical or commercial development.”  Of these, Rejeski identified 77 cancer-related drugs and 56 drug delivery applications.  Rejek also stated that the “stakes are extremely high” in the nanotechnology industry, and that FDA should ensure it has the “capacity to address potential nanotechnology risks now” in order to maintain public confidence.
