Text Box: Introduction
Magnetic drug delivery is a relatively new area of research with applications in many fields of medicine. This method of drug delivery uses the magnetic properties of ferrofluids and specific nanoparticles to actively target isolated tissues in vivo. In order to accurately direct the treatment to the proper location, the necessary medications are laced with magnetic particles and the magnet-drug compound is injected into the bloodstream.  If possible, the injection site is into the artery flowing to the site of interest.  Next, a strong permanent magnet is placed near the target location on the body allowing the magnetic field to direct the flow of the drug. This method has shown promising potential in the fields of cancer and cardiovascular disease among other ailments.
