A research team showed that a nanotherapeutic medicine can halt the growth of artery plaque cells resulting in the fast reduction of the inflammation that may cause a heart attack, … Continue Reading Nanotechnology successfully used to halt atherosclerotic plaque growth in animal model.
Magnetic nanoparticles can open the blood-brain barrier and deliver molecules directly to the brain, state researchers from the University of Montreal, Polytechnique Montréal and CHU Sainte-Justine. This barrier runs inside almost … Continue Reading Radio-controlled nanobots open the blood-brain barrier just the right amount in murine studies.
Once-a-week nanoparticle injection successfully prevents corneal transplant rejection in animal study.
There are about 48,000 corneal transplants done each year in the U.S., compared to approximately 16,000 kidney transplants and 2,100 heart transplants. Out of the 48,000 corneal transplants done, 10 … Continue Reading Once-a-week nanoparticle injection successfully prevents corneal transplant rejection in animal study.
Novel nanoparticle enables MRI to visualize pancreas inflammation in T1 diabetes for the first time.
A pilot study led by researchers at the Joslin Diabetes Center and the Massachusetts General Hospital have revealed that it is possible to use magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to image … Continue Reading Novel nanoparticle enables MRI to visualize pancreas inflammation in T1 diabetes for the first time.
Nanometer-sized drones that deliver a special type of healing molecule to fat deposits in arteries could become a new way to prevent heart attacks caused by atherosclerosis, if an animal … Continue Reading Nanobot ‘drones’ successfully target atherosclerosis in animal model.
Injectable nanoparticles that could protect an injured person from further damage due to oxidative stress have proven to be astoundingly effective in tests to study their mechanism. Scientists at Rice … Continue Reading Nano-antioxidants shown to have ‘enormous’ capability to quench superoxides after traumatic injury.
Researchers from New York University have been collaborating with the Peking University on a new nanotechnology test strip that is demonstrating great potential for the early detection of certain heart … Continue Reading Gold nanoparticles used to detect heart attacks early.
Researchers at Oregon State University have developed a new way to selectively insert compounds into cancer cells, a system that will help surgeons identify malignant tissues and then, in combination … Continue Reading Nanotechnology guides cancer surgery and then selectively kills remaining malignant cells.
Malaria parasites invade human red blood cells, they then disrupt them and infect others. Researchers at the University of Basel and the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute have now … Continue Reading Nanotechnology used to protect against in situ Malaria parasites.
Conventional treatment seeks to eradicate cancer cells by drugs and therapy delivered from outside the cell, which may also affect (and potentially harm) nearby normal cells. In contrast to conventional … Continue Reading First-in-class cancer-specific nanoparticles infiltrate, kill tumour cells from within.
University of Georgia researchers have developed a new formulation of cisplatin, a common chemotherapy drug, that significantly increases the drug’s ability to target and destroy cancerous cells.
