A new approach to growing heart muscle

...gineering platforms: self-organization strategies, biodegradable hydrogels such as fibrin, and polymeric scaffolds. Each approach may turn out to have its own applications, says Birla, and the ability to conduct side-by-side comparisons is important. Other researchers have focused on one approach or another, bu...

MIT material stops bleeding in seconds

...University researchers have shown that some simple biodegradable liquids can stop bleeding in wounded rodents within seconds, a development that could significantly impact medicine. When the liquid, composed of protein fragments called peptides, is applied to open wounds, the peptides self-assemble into a nanosca...

Biodegradable napkin -- featuring sensitive nanofibers -- may quickly detect biohazards

New 'self-exploding' microcapsules could take sting out of drug delivery

...ame job. Each of the new microparticles features a biodegradable gel core that is surrounded by a lipid membrane. As the gel biodegrades, pressure builds up in the membrane. Eventually the microcapsule ruptures, releasing the medication. The system, the researchers note, could change how some vaccines are adminis...

FDA approves first medical device using rutgers biomaterial

...dical device for hernia repair that incorporates a biodegradable technology developed at the university. This action signals a paradigm shift in the application of biomaterials from permanent prosthetic replacements toward regenerative medicine, in which materials help the body to repair itself and are then resorb...

Nano-particles effective in killing cancer with one-two punch of chemotherapeutics

But for such a commonplace and useful protein, collagen has defied the efforts of biomedical researchers who have tried mightily to synth...

Nanotechnology may find disease before it starts

...said that Liu and her team are working on creating biodegradable nanoparticles. For the purposes of this study, however, the researchers wanted to use a hard substance, silica, to see if their idea would work. The strongest ultrasound signals are those produced by sound waves bounce off a hard surface. While not b...

Rice bioengineers pioneer techniques for knee repair

...replacement transplant tissues involved the use of biodegradable implants that are seeded with donor cells and growth factors. These implants, which engineers refer to as scaffolds, foster the tissue growth process by acting as a template for new growth, but they always present a risk of toxicity due to the fact t...
