Reactive oxygen species (ROS) exhibit the potential to act as signal carriers during the development of malignant tumors. At a suitable concentration, ROS tends to mediate cell growth and signal transduction.
The authors of a paper published in the journal Nature Methods have coined the term "NanoNeuro" to describe an emerging discipline that intersects nanoscience and neuroscience. It utilizes nanotechnology to simulate neuronal activity in the brain.
Researchers are building a tool that can offer drug researchers insight into how well a new nanoparticle-based cancer therapy will work, even before a drug enters animal testing.
The Innovation Center of NanoMedicine, Kawasaki Institute of Industrial Promotion, in collaboration with the Chinese Academy of Science Key Laboratory of Soft Matter Chemistry, has created nanomachines that detect MMPs, a principal enzyme for cancer cells to invade normal tissue, and deliver anticancer drugs according to an announcement in the journal Advanced Materials.
The special properties of cell membrane-coated biomimetic nanoparticles (NPs) have attracted extensive studies in the field of nanomedicine. These properties include long blood circulation, immune escaping, specific molecular recognition, and efficient cancer targeting, indicating a great potential in targeted cancer therapy.
Cancer immunotherapy aims to change “cold” tumors into “hot” tumors – those that react to immunotherapy – by stimulating and enlisting the immune system of the body.
The coronavirus pandemic has made many people get accustomed to wearing face masks to safeguard themselves and others. However, that does not mean it is always easy to wear them—particularly during exercise.
The University of Strathclyde is going to be the location for a newly commissioned nationwide facility for testing pioneering nanotechnologies for healthcare applications.
The EVONANO platform developed at the University of Bristol enables scientists to develop virtual tumors and employ artificial intelligence to make automated optimization of the design of nanoparticles to treat the tumors.
Diamonds are valuable stones used in the jewelry and industrial sectors. But in the foreseeable future, diamond nanoparticles, or nanodiamonds (NDs), may be the solution for mankind’s oral health.
