Sperm tail enzymes inspire nanobiotechnology

Sperm tail enzymes inspire nanobiotechnology

Just like workers in a factory, enzymes can create a final product more efficiently if they are stuck together in one place and pass the raw material from enzyme to enzyme, assembly line-style. [More]
Researchers come up with new approach to stabilize vaccines at room temperature

Researchers come up with new approach to stabilize vaccines at room temperature

Shipping vaccines in an unbroken temperature-controlled supply chain (a "cold chain") all the way to recipients is a major logistical and financial challenge in remote areas and developing countries. [More]

Virginia Tech and CytImmune Sciences develop more effective and less toxic cancer treatment

Virginia Tech scientists have developed a new cancer drug that uses gold nanoparticles created by the biotech firm CytImmune Sciences to deliver paclitaxel — a commonly used chemotherapy drug directly to a tumor. [More]
Technion researchers develop new diagnostic technology for improving personalized cancer treatment

Technion researchers develop new diagnostic technology for improving personalized cancer treatment

Using synthetic DNA sequences as the tiniest of barcodes, Technion researchers have developed a new diagnostic technology for determining the suitability of specific anticancer drugs to a specific patient - before treatment even begins. [More]
Researchers propose model photomotors for rapid nanoparticle transport

Researchers propose model photomotors for rapid nanoparticle transport

Scientists from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, Semenov Institute of Chemical Physics of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and Chuiko Institute of Surface Chemistry of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine have proposed a model nanosized dipole photomotor based on the phenomenon of light-induced charge redistribution.

New treatment with therapeutic short interfering RNA could help thwart cancer

New treatment with therapeutic short interfering RNA could help thwart cancer

In the fight against cancer, doctors dish out combination-blows of surgery, chemotherapy and other drugs to beat back a merciless foe. Now, scientists have taken early steps toward adding a stinging punch to clinicians' repertoire. [More]
Researchers explore how polymeric nanoparticles can be used to transport quantum dots into cells

Researchers explore how polymeric nanoparticles can be used to transport quantum dots into cells

Nanoparticles are particles that are smaller than 100 nanometers. They are typically obtained from metals and, because of their tiny size, have unique properties that make them useful for biomedical applications. [More]
Researchers identify potential new treatment for brain cancer by targeting genes linked to microcephaly

Researchers identify potential new treatment for brain cancer by targeting genes linked to microcephaly

University of North Carolina Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center researchers have identified a potential new treatment for brain cancer by learning from a rare condition that can cause microcephaly. [More]
Nano-biointeraction and nanopathology

Nano-biointeraction and nanopathology

Nanoparticles enter the organism in a number of ways. In most cases through inhalation and ingestion. When inhaled, the majority of them are expelled with the next breath. When ingested, most of them are gotten rid of through feces. [More]
Yale researchers use new gene editing technique to correct mutations that cause thalassemia

Yale researchers use new gene editing technique to correct mutations that cause thalassemia

A Yale-led research team used a new gene editing strategy to correct mutations that cause thalassemia, a form of anemia. [More]
Scientists find new way to see where certain cancer drugs accumulate in the body

Scientists find new way to see where certain cancer drugs accumulate in the body

Nanomedicine has the potential to help personalize cancer treatments and reduce side effects of therapeutic drugs. [More]
Research could lead to new type of treatment for pancreatic cancer based on gold nanoparticles

Research could lead to new type of treatment for pancreatic cancer based on gold nanoparticles

A diagnosis of pancreatic cancer is often a death sentence because chemotherapy and radiation have little impact on the disease. [More]
