Nanomedicine is a reality of medical research and clinical practice, and it offers new and promising approaches to fundamental problems in medicine. Most prominent are the early detection of neoplastic disease and the individualized treatment of metastases. These potentially transformational developments require careful scrutiny of the potential impact of nanomedicine on society, so that the community can guide its deployment in keeping with the fundamental tenets of medical ethics.
