Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a general neurodegenerative disorder that occurs due to the death of dopaminergic neurons in a part of the brain (called substantia nigra pars compacta), which results in a lack of dopamine (DA), one of the principal neurotransmitters active in the central nervous system.
Dolomite Microfluidics, a leading developer of particle systems for drug delivery, and Phosphorex, Inc., a leading contract development and manufacturing organization specializing in particle-based formulation of drug products, are pleased to announce their partnership to establish unique capabilities in drug and vaccine development.
A collaborative study by Kazan Federal University and Chinese Academy Sciences has been reported in Chemical Engineering Journal.
Scientists from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine have demonstrated that inhalable nanobodies can prevent and cure severe COVID-19 in hamsters by targeting the spike protein of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus.
The ultrathin material graphene is defined by its extremely small bending modulus—superflimsiness.
Preclinical studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of an experimental flu vaccine that contains scores of microscopic spherical sacs carrying infection-fighting proteins all through the body.
Before the huge potential of tiny nanocarriers for highly targeted drug delivery and environmental clean-up can be realized, scientists first need to be able to see them.
A new software tool developed by Earlham Institute researchers will help bioinformaticians improve the quality and accuracy of their biological data, and avoid mis-assemblies.
Blocked blood vessels in the brains of stroke patients prevent oxygen-rich blood from getting to cells, causing severe damage. Plants and some microbes produce oxygen through photosynthesis.
A filter made from polymer nanothreads blew three kinds of commercial masks out of the water by capturing 99.9% of coronavirus aerosols in an experiment.
