'Nanomaterials: Evolution and Advancement Towards Therapeutic Drug Delivery' gives the present status and future perspective of Polymeric nanoparticles, Liposomes, Carbon Nanotubes, Magnetic Nanoparticles, Silica Based nanomaterial, Hydrogels, Metallic Nanoparticles, Cyclodextrins, Poly (Lactide-Co-Glycolide) and its Copolymers.
Muscular dystrophies are a group of genetic diseases that lead to the progressive loss of muscle mass and function in patients, with the incurable Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, which affects all the body's muscles primarily in boys, being particularly severe.
A new system developed by engineers at Duke University could help manipulate particles nearing the minuscule DNA diameter of 2.5 nm with the help of sound-induced electric fields.
Researchers are exploring a new strategy in the protracted fight against the infamous SARS-CoV-2 virus by designing nanobodies. These nanobodies are capable of neutralizing the virus variants in two different ways.
In a paper published in NANO, a team of researchers from Jiangnan University, China have prepared a convenient sensing platform which can detect microRNA-205 with high sensitivity and excellent selectivity using TpTta-COF nanosheet and fluorescent oligonucleotide probes.
Nanodecoys are made from human lung spheroid cells (LSCs). They bind and neutralize the SARS-CoV-2 virus, promoting viral clearance and reducing injury to the lungs in a COVID-19 macaque model.
Researchers at the University of Illinois Chicago have successfully used graphene -- one of the strongest, thinnest known materials -- to detect the SARS-CoV-2 virus in laboratory experiments.
Nanoengineers at the University of California San Diego have developed immune cell-mimicking nanoparticles that target inflammation in the lungs and deliver drugs directly where they're needed.
The rare lung disease is so complicated that its acronym is difficult to pronounce. However, for infants who were unfortunate enough to be born with this disorder, the outcome is generally fatal.
For the first time, an international research group headed by the United Kingdom has identified elemental metallic iron and copper in the human brain.
