Aqueous Nanoparticle Solution Repairs Deep Wounds

Aqueous Nanoparticle Solution Repairs Deep Wounds

A significant breakthrough could revolutionize surgical practice and regenerative medicine. A team led by Ludwik Leibler from the Laboratoire Matière Molle et Chimie (CNRS/ESPCI Paris Tech) and Didier Letourneur from the Laboratoire Recherche Vasculaire Translationnelle (INSERM/Universités Paris Diderot and Paris 13), has just demonstrated that the principle of adhesion by aqueous solutions of nanoparticles can be used in vivo to repair soft-tissue organs and tissues.

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.
