The Nanotechnology Institute of the Cutting-edge Science Centre of Kim Il Sung University is well-known in the scientific research world for development and introduction of different kinds of things of latest models. Recently Kim Sung Chol, the director, Kim Yong Nam, a section chief and Min Hung Suk, a researcher, using a new version of nanotechnology, produced the nano-selenium & oligosaccharide capsule, which is effective in treating arthritis and other kinds of diseases, by making an organic compound of nanotechnology-treated selenium and oligosaccharide extracted from the crab crust.

Through repeated experiments and research they cut the toxicity of selenium dozens of times lower than the existing organic and inorganic selenium products, thus enhancing the safety of the medicine considerably.

Having observed the clinical trials of the medicine for years, relevant medical experts and nutritional researchers and other nanotechnologists unanimously approved that the new medicine is a new kind of nanotechnological product that is based on a rational compound of different sorts of pharmacological functions of nano-selenium and chitosan-oligosaccharide. The medicine has been found to have the best pharmacological effect in removing the inflammation and pain in the joint areas and rehabilitating and protecting the joint cartilage.

In the past the developers paid deep attention to the fact that selenium is an essential microelement for man’s normal living and that some 70 percent of the world’s land area including Korea was declared as deficient in selenium. The daily food taken by man contains only one tenth of the necessary amount of selenium, and the aging process gets accelerated as the antioxidant-producing ability of the body falls with their getting on in years.

Now the researchers decided that the settlement of the problem is an essential and critical issue in the human living activities, and began to tackle it. But it was by no means an easy task. A lot of problems arose in the effort, such as ensuring the proper size and stability of nano-selenium and making a high density of chitosan-oligosaccharide. The researchers were dauntless, though. Through dozens of tests and experiments they found out that selenium, when entering the body, works as antioxidant and immediately removes harmful elements. Moreover, they learned that it prevents the cells from being damaged and helps people live longer.

On the basis of the knowledge they successfully developed the nano-selenium & oligosaccharide capsule by compounding selenium with hydrolysed chitosan-oligosaccharide, which is another element of the capsule.

As the medicine has all the favourable pharmacological functions of nano-selenium and chitosan-oligosaccharide, it is very helpful in treating and preventing arthritis and other kinds of diseases. Especially, it clearly inhibits the formation of the blood vessels of the cancerous cells and the transfer and growth of the cancerous cells, and improves the immunity of cells so as to prevent or treat different kinds of cancer like those of lung, liver, breast and pancreas. For the merit the medicine is gaining great popularity.

In addition, the capsule is good for prevention and treatment of cataract and inflamed prostate gland, and for improvement of the cerebral function and the men’s sexual desire.

The productivity is also high as there is an unlimited amount of materials for chitosan-oligosaccharide and the production of nano-selenium costs very low.

The product was registered as latest sci-tech product for its approved originality and rationality of the nanotechnology used for the development and manufacture. It took first place at the 32nd national sci-tech festival this year.

The researchers are redoubling their effort to attain a greater target of developing still more kinds of things based on latest science and technology.
