Destroying pathogens in the bloodstream

More visionary theoretical work by Robert Freitas, this time a scaling study of a medical nanosystem for removing microbiological pathogens from the human bloodstream. "As a scaling study, this paper serves mainly to demonstrate that all systems required for mechanical phagocytosis could fit into the stated volumes and could apply the necessary forces and perform all essential functions within the given power limits and time allotments."
