New hydrogel nanoplatform shrinks tumors in mice

Functionalised nanoparticles are one avenue of drug delivery for chemotherapeutics. However, getting nanoparticles to target the tumor site has proven difficult to do. One method researchers have used to target cancer cells is to create hydrogels made of filamentous bacteriophage (phage) and gold nanoparticles. Peptide binding ligands can be incorporated into the phage portion of the hydrogel that will then target known carcinoma cells.

'Hybrid' nanocrystals aid targeted drug delivery

Researchers have taken a huge step closer to the engineering of nanoscale devices to aid the delivery of life-saving drug treatments. Research co-leader Professor Dayong Jin at UTS said such minute devices have the potential to be engineered to efficiently and more safely deliver drug treatments directly to the location of diseased cells while helping avoid harm to healthy cells that fall victim to toxic drugs administered by conventional means.

Light-activated nanoparticles kill 'superbugs'

Light-activated nanoparticles kill 'superbugs'
In the ever-escalating evolutionary battle with drug-resistant bacteria, humans may soon have a leg up thanks to adaptive, light-activated nanotherapy developed by researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder. Antibiotic-resistant bacteria such as Salmonella, E. Coli and Staphylococcus infect some 2m people and kill at least 23,000 people in the United States each year.

Research programme explores nanomedicine characterisation

CEA-Leti has announced the launch of the European Nano-Characterisation Laboratory (EU-NCL), funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. Its main objective is to reach a level of international excellence in nanomedicine characterisation for medical indications of cancer, diabetes, inflammatory diseases or infections, and make this accessible to all organisations developing candidate nanomedicines prior to their submission to regulatory agencies.
