Researchers still have a long path to tread before they can treat Alzheimer’s Disease, partially because the protein aggregates that can turn into brain plaques, a characteristic attribute of the disease, are challenging to analyze.
The genetic tool CRISPR has been likened to molecular scissors for its ability to snip out and replace genetic code within DNA.
Glioblastoma multiforme, the most common and aggressive form of primary brain tumor, has a survival rate of just five years. It is particularly challenging to treat, with existing therapies depending on chemotherapy, radiation, surgery, and their combinations.
Muscle plays a crucial role in maintaining the human lives and is the largest organ accounting for 40% of body mass.
Ever since X-rays were discovered by Wilhelm Röntgen in 1895, they have become a standard in medical imaging.
Motor proteins produce the forces required for crucial mechanical processes in the human body. On a nanometer scale—that is, a millionth of a millimeter—motor proteins, for instance, transport material within the human cells, or power the human muscles.
A cancer immunotherapy drug loaded onto a metal-organic framework exhibits improved delivery as well as a steady release for treating leukemia.
Researchers from the Scientific and Educational Center “Smart Materials and Biomedical Applications” have performed a joint interdisciplinary research work on the development of a novel approach for treating leukemia through nanomaterials.
Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), commonly known as angioplasty with a stent, opens clogged arteries and saves lives. Despite its benefit in treating atherosclerosis that causes coronary artery disease, this common minimally-invasive procedure still poses severe complications for some patients.
A holy grail for orthopedic research is a method for not only creating artificial bone tissue that precisely matches the real thing, but does so in such microscopic detail that it includes tiny structures potentially important for stem cell differentiation, which is key to bone regeneration.
