Experimental flu shots newly developed by researchers safeguard animals from an extensive range of pandemic and seasonal influenza strains. At present, the vaccine product is being developed further toward clinical testing.
Researchers from the Department of Orthopedics of Tongji Hospital at Tongji University in Shanghai have successfully used a nanobiomaterial called layered double hydroxide (LDH) to inhibit the inflammatory environment surrounding spinal cord injuries in mice, accelerating regeneration of neurons and reconstruction of the neural circuit in the spine.
With the UK’s government’s ‘roadmap out of lockdown’, parents look to a return to school and hope lies in the vaccines leading to the easing of restrictions and some semblance of normal life - whilst the inevitable coronavirus spikes are contained.
Nanobots are machines whose components are at the nano-scale (one millionth of a millimetre), and can be designed in such a way that they have the ability to move autonomously in fluids.
Scientists from the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech) and their collaborators from Hadassah Medical Center have designed new hybrid nanostructured particles that may help fight cancer.
Scientists have proposed a new method for treating pancreatic tumor that involves using nanomicelles entirely made of macromolecules.
Recently, researchers from China analyzed and found that carboxylated nanodiamonds (cNDs) could support the adhesion of tumor cells to the underlying substrate, thereby restricting the motility of tumor cells.
Nanozymes, a group of inorganic catalysis-efficient particles, have been proposed as promising antimicrobials against bacteria. They are efficient in killing bacteria, thanks to their production of reactive oxygen species (ROS).
Researchers from Skoltech and their colleagues from Hadassah Medical Center have developed hybrid nanostructured particles that can be magnetically guided to the tumor, tracked by their fluorescence and pushed to release the drug on demand by ultrasound.
New nanoprobes, which were recently developed by Imperial College London (ICL) and tested in zebrafish, could help identify cancer more precisely and may support the diagnosis and treatment in the days to come.
