The “nanosponges” are wrapped in red blood cell membranes to prevent them from being attacked by the body’s immune system. “This is a new way to remove toxins from the bloodstream,” Liangfang Zhang, a nanoengineering professor at the UCSD Jacobs School of Engineering, said in the release. The “nanosponges” are free of toxins, thus safe for medical professionals to deliver general treatment versus multiple toxin-dependent treatments.
