In the introduction of our publication, we described the background to the work as follows: “Many scientists have a dream that someday in the future, wireless nanobiodevices (such as nanorobots) can be used for in situ and real-time diagnosis and therapeutic intervention for specific targets, such as the treatment of cancers and the repair of tissue/organ defects.1–4 Currently, much of the research in this area remains highly theoretical,4...”.

It should be noted that the references about theoretical research on nanobiodevices should be revised as follows (see revised ref. 4 below). We apologize for the change of references in the introduction.
