Man-made antibodies show promise in attacking cancer cells in animal models

Using chemotherapy along with aptamers – lab-made molecules that function like antibodies — researchers have shown that they can zero in on and kill prostate cancer tumours in mice while leaving healthy tissue unscathed. The finding suggests that aptamers could form the basis of new cancer therapies if additional studies in animals and humans [...]

A Drug-Resistant Strain of Typhoid Is Going to Spread, Scientists Fear

One more mutation, and the strain could become untreatable. The first “extensively drug-resistant” strain of typhoid is spreading through Pakistan, leaving scientists concerned about a deadly outbreak and the rise of other drug-resistant diseases. Five different types of antibiotics have proven ineffective against the new strain, which has infected 850 people across Pakistan, according [...]

Scientists measure the energy levels of single molecules on insulators

Our understanding of single-molecule electronics has become clearer and the answer involved using a common household item – salt. Building off of a previous paper in 2009 (Science, "Measuring the Charge State of an Adatom with Noncontact Atomic Force Microscopy"), where IBM scientists and collaborators demonstrated the ability to measure the charge state of [...]

Mimicking nanoscale natural movements with the help of DNA origami

Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems together with researchers at the University of Heidelberg and the University of Stuttgart use a technique called DNA origami to mimic a multitude of vital movements seen in nature, such as the sliding motion exerted by protein motors during cell division. Their invention, which is [...]

Ray Kurzweil: In The 2030s, Nanobots In Our Brains Will Make Us ‘Godlike’

Futurist and inventor Ray Kurzweil predicts humans are going to develop emotions and characteristics of higher complexity as a result of connecting their brains to computers. “We’re going to be funnier. We’re going to be sexier. We’re going to be better at expressing loving sentiment,” Kurzweil said at a recent discussion at Singularity [...]

Observing biological nanotransporters

A research team of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) was able to describe with atomic detail how molecules are transported through biological membranes. Computer simulations and spectroscopic experiments provided insights into the work of so-called ABC transporters. These proteins play an important role in the drug resistance of tumour cells and bacteria. The researchers within [...]

Nanoparticles for lung cancer pass next test

The most common type of lung cancer, non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), continues to be difficult to treat, with five year survival rates of about 36 percent for stage 3A tumors. Jefferson College of Pharmacy researchers are developing a new treatment approach based on nanotechnology that was recently shown to be effective in mouse [...]
