As medical practice enters a new era with the exciting new applications of nanoscience and technology, the paper introduces the philosophy and the principles of controlled drug delivery and the generation of tissue. It further describes and discusses new research into nanoporous materials and how encapsulation of various medical substances can create stimuli-controlled precision delivery systems. The paper goes on to highlight the process of those new materials for medical applications citing particularly a successful process for coating them onto flexible materials such as fabrics. © 2005 Elsevier Ltd.
