Scientists have developed a 'nanobody' - a small fragment of a llama antibody - that is capable of chasing out human cytomegalovirus as it hides away from the immune system.
Nanomaterials have been used in a variety of emerging applications, such as in targeted pharmaceuticals or to bolster other materials and products such as sensors and energy harvesting and storage devices.
Antimicrobials find their use in destroying or slowing down the growth of viruses, bacteria, and other microorganisms. They could exist in the form of an additive, as an antibiotic used to treat bodily infections, or as a coating on commercial products that are utilized to prevent germs.
A study using renewable solvent CyreneTM, produced by biotechnology company Circa Group, found that high-purity nanoparticles can be produced – opening up opportunities to use CyreneTM as a more sustainable and saf...
A recent study by scientists from Japanese universities has shown that the shape of cell-derived nanoparticles, known as "extracellular vesicles", in body fluids could be a biomarker for identifying types of cancer.
A new nanotechnology development by an international research team led by Tel Aviv University researchers will make it possible to generate electric currents and voltage within the human body through the activation of various organs.
Scientists recently created nano-scale borate bioactive glass ([email protected]) using a steady-state strong magnetic field experimental device.
Researchers from New York University Abu Dhabi, UAE, have used, for the first time, nuclear magnetic resonance techniques to identify the structure of a particular nanobody called Nb23.
Researchers from the University of Sydney and the National Institute for Material Science (NIMS) in Japan have identified an artificial network of nanowires that can be adjusted to react in a brain-like manner upon electrical stimulation.
Using a biomolecule known as B3 peptide, researchers from the Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) have developed an eco-friendly process to synthesize gold nanoparticles that have improved morphology for near-infrared light absorption.
