Nanoparticles could allow for faster, better medicine

Gold nanoparticles could help make drugs act more quickly and effectively, according to new research conducted at Binghamton University, State University of New York. Nanoparticles are microscopic particles that are bigger than atoms but smaller than what the eye can see. They are unique for their large surface area-to-volume ratio and their fairly ubiquitous nature. [...]

Nanowired Drugs for Treating Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Diseases

Millions of Americans suffer from neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. Researchers have identified new treatments, such as cerebrolysin, which are promising, but present clinical approaches are ineffective as critical concentrations of the drug dissipate within the body prior to reaching the central nervous system and brain. Researchers addressed this problem by focusing on [...]

Nanotechnology might help farmers fight climate change, pests and disease–and boost yields

The sun is strong, the sky Hollywood-set blue, but the wind is brutal. This is confounding the work of Wade Elmer, chief scientist for the Department of Plant Pathology and Ecology at the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station. At the CAES farm in Hamden, he and a small contingent of grad students, lab assistants, and other [...]

New Study Highlights Bone-Targeted Nanoparticle Treatment for Prostate Cancer

In certain patients, castrate-resistant or metastatic prostate cancer can spread to the bone. Although many new treatments are available, they can have a hard time reaching the bone and frequently result in missing the metastatic lesions. New study presented at the 2017 American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) Annual Meeting and Exposition aims to tackle [...]

Next-generation optogenetic molecules control single neurons

Researchers at MIT and Paris Descartes University have developed a new optogenetic technique that sculpts light to target individual cells bearing engineered light-sensitive molecules, so that individual neurons can be precisely stimulated. Until now, it has been challenging to use optogenetics to target single cells with such precise control over both the timing and location [...]

Zipping DNA

What do you do if you have a large document or a high-resolution image that is too big to send via email? You simply zip it to a more manageable size using a suitable software. "Instead of sending the information 'white-white-white-white-white-...' for every single pixel on a white line, only the message 'white 1,000 times' [...]

Nanoparticles can limit inflammation by distracting the immune system

A surprise finding suggests that an injection of nanoparticles may be able to help fight the immune system when it goes haywire, researchers at the University of Michigan have shown (ACS Nano, "Neutrophil-particle interactions in blood circulation drive particle clearance and alter neutrophil responses in acute inflammation"). The nanoparticles divert immune cells that cause inflammation [...]
