Engineered macrophage nanosponges could keep sepsis in check.

Sepsis is the overreaction of the body’s immune system to infection capable of causing tissue damage, organ failure, and death.  Sepsis-causing bacteria secrete toxic molecules known as endotoxins which trigger immune … Continue Reading Engineered macrophage nanosponges could keep sepsis in check.

Plant-based nanoparticles successfully treat inflammatory bowel disease in animal model.

There is a clinical need for new, more effective treatments for chronic and debilitating inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), including Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.  Now, a study from researchers at … Continue Reading Plant-based nanoparticles successfully treat inflammatory bowel disease in animal model.

Novel nanoparticle acts like Trojan horse to halt asthma in animal model.

Allergies are characterized by inappropriate inflammatory responses to benign environmental antigens. Primary clinical approaches to allergic disease consist of symptom control or administration of soluble antigens to skew the immune response … Continue Reading Novel nanoparticle acts like Trojan horse to halt asthma in animal model.

New biomimetic nanoparticle successfully treats eye cancer in animal model.
