Abstract

Author discusses some of the anticipated innovations of biomedical nanotechnology and the possibility that public acceptance of the use of nanotechnology in health care is likely to be influenced by the perception of the associated risks. Author suggests the adoption of a precautionary approach, based on the use of reliable scientific data, in order to reduce the level of risk.
