Conference report highlights new research into drug delivery to treat eye disease

...sensitive polymers to help deliver one of the latest drugs, silencing RNA (siRNA). Another group of presenters discussed the use of nanoparticles, microbeads and microneedles. Mansoor M. Amiji, PhD, said that nanoparticles can help overcome barriers to drug delivery from the organ level to the subcellular l...

CIHR news: health research touching lives

...ns and Mtis children and their families. Dr. Sylvain Martel (cole polytechnique de Montral, Universit de Montral) will use an MRI scanner to deliver microbeads with anti-cancer drugs directly into liver tumours. CIHR funds the best ideas and the brightest minds, and the projects announced today are no e...

Nanocubes Designed For Delivering Cells

...tate University. The team engineered the sides of the box to contain different-sized pores, through which they could inject therapeutic cells or microbeads coated with drugs. The pores also allow the drugs to seep out into the body at the appropriate time. And because the nanocube is made from metal...

Scientists create dual-modality microbeads to improve identification of disease biomarkers

Analyzing human blood for a very low virus concentration or a sample of water for a bioterrorism agent has always been a time-consuming and difficult process. Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University have developed an easier and faster method to detect these types of ...

Environmental fate of nanoparticles depends on properties of water carrying them

...dy the flow and retention of the nanoparticles in simulated soil and filtration systems, Pennells research team filled glass columns with either glass microbeads or sand, and saturated the columns with water. They then sent a pulse of water containing C60 nanoparticles through the columns, followed by addition...

Growth factor stimulates rapid extension of key motor neurons in brain

...nt. Using these purified neurons, they then showed that two ways of applying IGF-1 ?generally adding it to culture dishes or placing IGF-1-coated microbeads right next to CSMN cell bodies ?both increased the growth of axons by 15- to 20-fold, reaching the very fast rates previously seen only during initial...

Tagging pathogens with synthetic DNA 'barcodes'

...es can be created using only three fluorescent dyes. To amplify the signals, the researchers attached many DNA probes to the surface of polystyrene microbeads 5.5 microns (millionths of a meter) in diameter. The results can be read in several ways. One is in a flow cytometer, in which samples move rapidly pa...
