Nanoplatforms in Imaging-Guided Brain Tumor Treatment

Malignant brain tumors are cancerous growth in the brain with the possibility of spreading to other parts of the central nervous system (CNS). Brain tumors are highly invasive and have devastating consequences, poor prognosis, and low survival rates. Recently, the noninvasive near-infrared fluorescence and photoacoustic imaging techniques have demonstrated a bright scope in brain [...]

Good Biocompatibility for Nanocapsules with Healthcare Applications

Methacrylate-based materials are often used in bone cement and dental resins. However, they have high failure rates as they undergo damage within ten years, impacting the quality of patient’s life and increasing healthcare costs. Although replacing methacrylate-based materials with self-healing resins and bone cement could increase lifespan, reduce costs, and enhance patient outcomes, the [...]

“Nanorattles” shake up new possibilities for disease detection

Researchers at Duke University have developed a unique type of nanoparticle called a “nanorattle” that greatly enhances light emitted from within its outer shell. Loaded with light scattering dyes called Raman reporters commonly used to detect biomarkers of disease in organic samples, the approach can amplify and detect signals from separate types of nanoprobes [...]

How Can Ion Diffusion Kinetics Influence Nanopore Sensing?

Nanopore sensing has emerged as a versatile approach to detecting and identifying biomolecules. Within this frame of reference, the fast-responding ionic current is considered an essential criterion for accurately measuring small objects with a nanopore. An article published in the journal IScience discussed the role of ion diffusion kinetics at the liquid-electrode interface in nanopore [...]

A plastic film that can kill viruses using room lights

Graphical abstract. Credit: Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology B: Biology (2022). DOI: 10.1016/j.jphotobiol.2022.112551 Researchers at Queen's University Belfast have developed a plastic film that can kill viruses that land on its surface with room light. The self-sterilizing film is the first of its kind—it is low cost to produce, can be readily scaled and could be [...]

Bone formation comes down to the nanowire

Nanotechnology that accelerates the transition of stem cells into bone could advance regenerative medicine. A nanotechnology platform developed by KAUST scientists could lead to new treatments for degenerative bone diseases. The system takes advantage of tiny iron wires that bend in response to magnetic fields. Bone-forming stem cells grown on a mesh of these [...]

How nasal-spray vaccines could change the pandemic

Are sprays the future of COVID-19 vaccines? That’s the hope of dozens of research groups and companies working on new kinds of inoculation. Rather than relying on injections, these use sprays or drops administered through the nose or mouth that aim to improve protection against the virus SARS-CoV-2. This week, an inhaled version of [...]
