Nanoimpellers are an experimental technology developed to eliminate some of the harmful effects of chemotherapy by facilitating treatment of only specific areas of the body. Nanoimpellers are nanoscale, light-activated containers filled with cancer-fighting drugs that only release their contents when hit by a specific type of laser.

As of 2008 the idea was under development.[1]
