Nanoparticles in blood
New research in the journal ACS Nano describes a method to improve the efficiency of NMN and metformin in the liver by using a novel nanoparticle delivery method. Nanotechnology in drug delivery  Nanotechnology is a broad field that utilizes the unique properties of extraordinarily small materials. In medicine, it has been applied in drug delivery...
Nanoparticles in blood
Scientists have successfully tested a new nanoparticle-based delivery system for CRISPR kits, achieving drastic improvements in mouse models of glioblastoma and ovarian cancer [1]. A gift from our single-cell ancestors CRISPR gene editing technology has been widely hailed as a potential game changer in medicine, including anti-cancer therapy. CRISPR’s ability to permanently disrupt tumor survival...
Atherosclerotic artery
Cyclodextrins have been of particular interest in the context of treating atherosclerosis, so today we want to highlight some interesting research that uses a novel delivery method to combat this disease. Nanoparticles improve drug delivery Cyclodextrins describe a group of cyclic oligosaccharides, which have a varied range of uses in the food, pharmaceutical, drug delivery,...
Smiley face
DNA origami, a nano-scale technique used to make very tiny smiley faces out of DNA, is becoming increasingly valuable for drug delivery and other applications, paving the way for true nanomedicine. What is DNA origami? Ever since Richard Feynman famously proclaimed in his seminal 1959 talk that "there’s plenty of room at the bottom", nanotechnology...
One extremely promising and emerging field of research is nano-biotechnology. Nano-biotechnology could potentially be an extremely powerful tool in our quest for a longer, healthier life. Senescent cells are known to be essential in multiple aging processes. Getting rid of these problem cells is, therefore, something we could do to potentially increase our healthy lifespan,...
At least in the developed world, cancer, heart diseases, and neurodegenerative diseases are among the greatest causes of mortality. One emerging and very promising way to prevent or cure these diseases is through bio-nanotechnology. Nanotechnology is the design, synthesis and application of materials or devices that are on the nanometer scale (one billionth of a...
