NanoApps Medical Near-Term Projects

NanoApps Medical is investigating the possibility that superparamagnetic nanoparticles (SPIONs) and other classes of nanoparticles (e.g., gold coated nanoshells) might have the capacity to target cancerous tumors, metastasizing cancer cells, pathogens, etc. to deactivate/eliminate them via hypothermia. This means that once the nanoparticles are adhered to their targets, they would be heated by an [...]

‘Please do not switch me off!’ People heed begging robot

If a little humanoid robot begged you to not shut it off, would you show compassion? In an experiment designed to investigate how people treat robots when they act like humans, many participants struggled to power down a pleading robot, either refusing to shut it off, or taking more than twice the amount of [...]

Nanoparticle-Based Combination Therapy to Treat Breast, Prostate Cancer

Researchers at the University of East Anglia have developed a new nanoparticle-based cancer therapy to deliver a combination therapy directly to cancer cells. The new therapy, which has been demonstrated to make prostate cancer and breast cancer tumors more sensitive to chemotherapy, is currently close to entering clinical trials. Researchers at UEA’s Norwich Medical [...]

AI: ChronWell CEO On Why Consolidation in Healthcare Is A Good Thing

When Joe Rubinsztain started gMed, he was admittedly young—only a few years removed from medical school— and he just didn’t understand leadership that well. “I needed to be abreast of everything and understand everything and control everything. And I needed to hire people that would do as I requested. As the company got bigger, [...]

Tuberculosis is a killer, but scientists are fighting back with nanobots

Tuberculosis, a bacterial disease which predominantly affects the lungs, isn’t all that common a sight in the United States. On average, fewer than 10,000 cases are reported each year in a country with a population of 325.7 million. In developing countries, it’s a different story, however. More than 95 percent of cases and [...]

Integrated sensor could monitor brain aneurysm treatment

Implantation of a stent-like flow diverter can offer one option for less invasive treatment of brain aneurysms – bulges in blood vessels – but the procedure requires frequent monitoring while the vessels heal. Now, a multi-university research team has demonstrated proof-of-concept for a highly flexible and stretchable sensor that could be integrated with the [...]

Nanotechnology in Medicine: Breakthrough Advances in Cancer Detection and Treatment

Clinicians have often pondered if cancer cells could be selectively targeted, and how payloads ranging from fluorescent dyes to oncology drugs could be accurately delivered to these cells, and then safely cleared through the kidneys.  Now, researchers at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and Nanotechnology in the College of Engineering at Cornell University have [...]

Scientists have 3D printed the most advanced artificial cornea ever using human cells

They’re not ready for human eyes yet, but one day these artificial corneas might help people see... Scientists have 3D printed the thin protective film over the eye, called the cornea, using human cells — and it’s the most advanced version of an artificial cornea yet. Should the technology improve, it could help [...]
