Biomimetic Surface Made of Dendrimers Aid Removal of Circulating Cancer Cells

A research team led by Seungpyo Hong, who serves as Assistant Professor of Biopharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Illinois at Chicago has developed a highly sensitive biomimetic surface utilizing the anti-epithelial cell adhesion molecule called aEpCAM and the dendrimers of seventh-generation polyamidoamine called PAMAM to remove circulating cancer cells from the blood.

New Research Compares Flow of Linear Polymers with Dendrimers

New Research Compares Flow of Linear Polymers with Dendrimers

An octopus-like polymer can "walk" along the wall of a narrow channel as it is pushed through by a solvent. Now research in The Journal of Chemical Physics, which is published by the American Institute of Physics, provides a theoretical model that compares the transport characteristics of straight- and branched-chain polymers in smooth channels as well as in channels whose walls interact with the polymer -- work that could aid in the development of carrier molecules for delivering drugs at a controlled rate in the body.
