Bacteria are presently ahead of humans in the arms race 'mankind against bacteria.' Antibiotics—the previous miracle weapons of humans—are failing more often because tricky maneuvers are used by microorganisms to safeguard themselves from the impacts of these medications.
Nanoform Finland Plc, an innovative nanoparticle medicine enabling company, and Aprecia, the 3DP (three-dimensional printing) pharmaceutical company, announce that they are exploring the synergies between their respective technologies in the field of nanoparticle-enabled 3DP dosage forms.
DNA-based robots could form a massive part of the medicine of the future and a new tool could design incredibly complex nanomachines in a matter of minutes rather than days.
A micro-sized polymeric net wrapping around brain tumors, just like a fishing net around a shoal of fish: this is the microMESH, a new nanomedicine device capable to conform around the surface of tumor masses and efficiently deliver drugs.
A new superbug-destroying coating developed by scientists could be utilized on implants and wound dressings to inhibit and treat potentially lethal fungal and bacterial infections.
A new self-assembling nanomaterial designed by biomedical engineers from Duke University stimulates major cells in the immune system that can help reduce damage caused by inflammatory disorders.
An innovative nanofiber production method known as “centrifugal multispinning” has been developed by scientists from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST). The new method will pave the way for safe and economical mass production of high-performance polymer nanofibers.
Although DNA sequencing has now turned more common, very few understand how difficult it is to extract even a single molecule of DNA from a biological sample.
The idea of implantable sensors that continuously transmit information on vital values and concentrations of substances or drugs in the body has fascinated physicians and scientists for a long time.
What is thinner than thin? One of the answers is 2D materials. These are unique materials of science whose width and length measure just one or two atoms thick.
