Study provides proof-of-concept for the oral delivery of nanoparticles.

In many cases, oral administration is the preferred method of drug delivery, with formulation of nanoparticles shown to improve drug stability in the harsh gastrointestinal (GI) tract environment. However, diverse … Continue Reading Study provides proof-of-concept for the oral delivery of nanoparticles.

Tiny drug-delivering capsules could sustain transplanted insulin-producing cells.

Researchers have long explored ways to transplant pancreatic islets to treat type I diabetes in the long term to eliminate the need for continuous glucose monitoring and insulin injections. However, … Continue Reading Tiny drug-delivering capsules could sustain transplanted insulin-producing cells.

Researchers derive first ever molecular model of critical blood-brain barrier transporter.

Presently, there are limitations to drug delivery to the brain as it is tightly protected by the blood-brain barrier. The blood-brain barrier is a protective barrier which separates the circulating … Continue Reading Researchers derive first ever molecular model of critical blood-brain barrier transporter.

New ‘nanoneedles’ puncture cell membrane to release payload on command.

Synthetic biology uses natural molecules and assembles them into a system that acts unnaturally.  The ability to control the transfer of molecules through cellular membranes is an important function in … Continue Reading New ‘nanoneedles’ puncture cell membrane to release payload on command.

First report of world’s first implantable chip capable of measuring metabolites and drugs in real-time.

The future of medicine lies in ever greater precision, not only when it comes to diagnosis but also drug dosage. The blood work that medical staff rely on is generally … Continue Reading First report of world’s first implantable chip capable of measuring metabolites and drugs in real-time.
