System allows rapid response to heart attacks

System allows rapid response to heart attacks
Researchers from North Carolina State University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have developed a drug-delivery system that allows rapid response to heart attacks without surgical intervention. In laboratory and animal testing, the system proved to be effective at dissolving clots, limiting long-term scarring to heart tissue and preserving more of the heart’s normal function.

Computer models improve function of prosthetic devices

Computer models improve function of prosthetic devices
Researchers have developed technology for decoding neuromuscular signals to control powered, prosthetic wrists and hands. The work relies on computer models that closely mimic the behavior of the natural structures in the forearm, wrist and hand. The technology could also be used to develop new computer interface devices for applications such as gaming and computer-aided design (CAD).

Adaptive powered knee prosthesis assists amputees

Adaptive powered knee prosthesis assists amputees
North Carolina State University research into wearable robotics shows how amputees wearing these devices adapted when presented with a real-world challenge: carrying a weighted backpack. The results could assist device manufacturers and clinicians expand the utility of these important devices, and could help researchers develop smarter controllers that adapt to real-world demands.

Biosensor can detect antibiotic production by microbes

Biosensor can detect antibiotic production by microbes
Researchers from North Carolina State University have engineered designer biosensors that can detect antibiotic molecules of interest. The biosensors are a first step toward creating antibiotic-producing “factories” within microbes such as E. coli. Macrolides are a group of naturally occurring small molecules that can have antibiotic, antifungal or anticancer effects. The antibiotic erythromycin is one example – it is a macrolide produced by soil-dwelling bacteria.

Microbot origami captures and transports single cells

Microbot origami captures and transports single cells
Researchers at North Carolina State University and Duke University have developed a way to assemble and pre-program tiny structures made from microscopic cubes – “microbot origami” – to change their shape when actuated by a magnetic field and then, using the magnetic energy from their environment, perform a variety of tasks – including capturing and transporting single cells.

Ultrasound 'drill' targets deep vein blood clots

Ultrasound 'drill' targets deep vein blood clots
Researchers at North Carolina State University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have developed a new surgical tool that uses low-frequency intravascular ultrasound to break down blood clots that cause deep vein thrombosis. The tool is the first ultrasound 'drill' that can be aimed straight ahead, allowing doctors to better target clots—which holds promise for significantly reducing treatment time. To date, the technology has been tested only in synthetic blood vessels.

Red blood cells can help regulate blood sugar

Red blood cells can help regulate blood sugar
Researchers from North Carolina State University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have developed a new technique that uses modified insulin and red blood cells to create a glucose-responsive 'smart' insulin delivery system. In an animal model study, the new technique effectively reduced blood sugar levels for 48 hours in a strain of mice that had Type 1 diabetes.

Paper pumps power portable biomedical devices

Paper pumps power portable biomedical devices
Biomedical engineering researchers from North Carolina State University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have developed inexpensive paper pumps that use capillary action to power portable microfluidic devices, opening the door to a range of biomedical tools. Microfluidic devices are devices that manipulate fluids which have a volume of one microliter or less - volumes substantially smaller than a single teardrop.

Nanowire skin sensor measures hydration levels

Nanowire skin sensor measures hydration levels
  Athletes, soldiers, miners, and many others can suffer from dehydration, potentially putting them in mortal danger. Monitoring hydration levels within the body out in the field remains a challenge, but researchers at North Carolina State University have come up with a technology that may prove to be a consistent way of gauging hydration.

Approaches to fighting antibiotic-resistant bacteria

Approaches to fighting antibiotic-resistant bacteria
With the recent finding in Pennsylvania of a hospital patient with an E.coli infection that resists colistin, an antibiotic used as the last line of defense against multi-drug resistant bacteria, the scientific and medical communities continue to search for answers to the menace of superbugs. While common antibiotics were able to treat the patient, the major concern is the spread of an antibiotic resistance factor previously unseen in the United States.
