Graphene Holds Promise as Sensitive Detector for Biological Molecules

Researchers from the HZB Institute for Silicon Photovoltaics have succeeded in accurately determining and controlling the thickness of an organic compound, which has been attached to a graphene layer. By this way, graphene could be used as a sensitive detector for biological molecules. [More]
Nanotechnology Drug in Droplets for Painless Treatment of Secondary Blindness

Nanotechnology Drug in Droplets for Painless Treatment of Secondary Blindness

The Mexican company "Medical and Surgical Center for Retina" created a way to transport drugs, in order to avoid risks and painful treatments in people with secondary blindness due to chronic degenerative blindness such as diabetic retinopathy and degeneration of the eye. The innovative formula results eliminates the need to administrate the drug by intraocular injection. [More]
Encapsulated, Nanobody-Targeted Drugs Cold Help Treat Sleeping Sickness

Encapsulated, Nanobody-Targeted Drugs Cold Help Treat Sleeping Sickness

Sleeping sickness, or African trypanosomiasis, is caused by trypanosome parasites transmitted by tsetse flies and threatens millions of people in sub-Saharan Africa. The disease is considered fatal if untreated, but as it affects mostly poor people in low-income countries, treatment options are limited. [More]
