A way to improve effectiveness of antibiotics

Scientists at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, have discovered that antibiotics can continue to be effective if bacteria's cell-to-cell communication and ability to latch on to each other are disrupted. This research breakthrough is a major step forward in tackling the growing concern of antibiotic resistance, opening up new treatment options for doctors to help patients fight against chronic and persistent bacterial infections.

Nanoparticle reveals cancer treatment effectiveness in real time

Nanoparticle reveals cancer treatment effectiveness in real time
Being able to detect early on whether a cancer therapy is working for a patient can influence the course of treatment and improve outcomes and quality of life. However, conventional detection methods – such as PET scans, CT and MRI – usually cannot detect whether a tumor is shrinking until a patient has received multiple cycles of therapy.

Stem cells restore vision after cataract surgery

Stem cells restore vision after cataract surgery
Researchers at University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and Shiley Eye Institute, with colleagues in China, have developed a new, regenerative medicine approach to remove congenital cataracts in infants, permitting remaining stem cells to regrow functional lenses.

Skin cells destroy deadly remnants of brain tumour

Skin cells destroy deadly remnants of brain tumour
In a first for medical science, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill pharmacy researchers turn skin cells into cancer-hunting stem cells that destroy brain tumors known as glioblastoma, a discovery that can offer, for the first time in more than 30 years, a new and more effective treatment for the disease. The technique, reported in Nature Communications, builds upon the newest version of the Nobel Prize-winning technology from 2007, which allowed researchers to turn skin cells into embryonic-like stem cells.

3D printing personalises treatment for heart disease

3D printing personalises treatment for heart disease
University of Melbourne doctors and engineers are using supercomputers to create 3D models from patients with heart disease, with photos from a camera thinner than a human hair. The images, gathered during a routine angiogram, are fed into a supercomputer. Within 24 hours, a model of a person's artery is 3D printed. This gives cardiologists crucial information about the behaviour of blood flow and the precise structure of the artery from the inside.

Nanoparticle has the potential to treat ocular cancer

Nanoparticle has the potential to treat ocular cancer
Researchers at the University of Michigan Kellogg Eye Center have developed a new nanoparticle that uses a tumor cell's protective mechanism against itself - short-circuiting tumor cell metabolism and killing tumor cells. "Our work uses a semiconducting nanoparticle with an attached platinum electrode to drive the synthesis of an anti-cancer compound when illuminated by light," says Howard R. Petty, Ph.D., professor of ophthalmology and visual sciences and of microbiology and immunology.

Injectable material could fix broken bones

Injectable material could fix broken bones
A team in France has just come up with a foamy cement which, when injected into bones, could not only help fix an injury but also encourage new bone formation. It’s based around calcium phosphate, a family of minerals that includes hydroxyapatite, which makes up around 70 percent of our bones.

Bionic eyes can ‘cure’ blindness

Bionic eyes can ‘cure’ blindness
A team of Australian researchers from Monash University are developing “bionic” eyes that have no need for the ocular system itself. In an attempt to restore some semblance of sight to the blind, researchers are working on a system that requires 11 small tiles to be implanted into various parts of the brain that receive and process signals related to visual stimuli.

New treatments prevent blockages and urinary infections

New treatments prevent blockages and urinary infections
New research could lead to new treatments to prevent blockages and urinary tract infections experienced by many long-term catheter users. Up to 50 per cent of long-term catheter users experience encrustations and subsequent blockage, which result in severe trauma and pain for the individual and place high burdens on healthcare services and finances.
