New Type of Nanocrystalline Cellulose Helps Prevent Spread of Virus into Cells

New Type of Nanocrystalline Cellulose Helps Prevent Spread of Virus into Cells

There are many viral diseases in the world for which no pharmaceutical treatment exists. These include, among others, dengue fever, which is spread by mosquitoes in the tropics, as well as a type of diarrhea, which is more familiar in Finland and is easily spread by the hands and can be dangerous especially for small children and the elderly.

Triple-Threat Nanoparticles More Effective in Killing Ovarian Cancer Cells

Triple-Threat Nanoparticles More Effective in Killing Ovarian Cancer Cells

Delivering chemotherapy drugs in nanoparticle form could help reduce side effects by targeting the drugs directly to the tumors. In recent years, scientists have developed nanoparticles that deliver one or two chemotherapy drugs, but it has been difficult to design particles that can carry any more than that in a precise ratio.

Novel Nanosensors Help Track ABA Stress Hormones in Plants

Novel Nanosensors Help Track ABA Stress Hormones in Plants

Biologists at UC San Diego have succeeded in visualizing the movement within plants of a key hormone responsible for growth and resistance to drought. The achievement will allow researchers to conduct further studies to determine how the hormone helps plants respond to drought and other environmental stresses driven by the continuing increase in the atmosphere’s carbon dioxide, or CO2, concentration.
