Focused delivery for brain cancers

Focused delivery for brain cancers
A person’s brainstem controls some of the body’s most important functions, including heart beat, respiration, blood pressure and swallowing. Tumour growth in this part of the brain is therefore twice as devastating. Not only can such a growth disrupt vital functions, but operating in this area is so risky, many medical professionals refuse to consider it as an option.

A pill for delivering biomedical micromotors

A pill for delivering biomedical micromotors
Using tiny micromotors to diagnose and treat disease in the human body could soon be a reality. But keeping these devices intact as they travel through the body remains a hurdle. Now in a study appearing in ACS Nano, scientists report that they have found a way to encapsulate micromotors into pills. The pill’s coating protects the devices as they traverse the digestive system prior to releasing their drug cargo.

Occlusion microcatheters receive CE Mark certification

Occlusion microcatheters receive CE Mark certification
Embolx has announced CE Certifications for its next-generation family of Sniper® Balloon Occlusion Microcatheters for the treatment of cancerous tumours, enlarged prostate and uterine fibroids. The novel system of microcatheters, which deliver pressure-directed arterial embolisation therapy, is now commercially available in both the United States and Europe. Sniper microcatheters increase therapeutic agent delivery to target areas, while protecting surrounding healthy tissues, by controlling pressure to alter blood flow.

AR tools to help health care workers save lives

AR tools to help health care workers save lives
Purdue University researchers have developed an approach that allows experienced surgeons and physicians around the world to help less-experienced doctors in war zones, natural disasters and in rural areas perform complicated procedures. “The most critical challenge is to provide surgical expertise into the battlefield when it is most required,” said Juan Wachs, Purdue’s James A. and Sharon M. Tompkins Rising Star Associate Professor of Industrial Engineering, who led the project team.

Electronic device implanted in the brain could stop seizures

Electronic device implanted in the brain could stop seizures
Researchers have successfully demonstrated how an electronic device implanted directly into the brain can detect, stop and even prevent epileptic seizures. The researchers, from the University of Cambridge, the École Nationale Supérieure des Mines and INSERM in France, implanted the device into the brains of mice, and when the first signals of a seizure were detected, delivered a native brain chemical which stopped the seizure from progressing.

Nanoparticle swarms to deliver medical therapies across body

Nanoparticle swarms to deliver medical therapies across body
A new way to control the collective movement of nano-robots has been developed by a research team led by Prof. Li ZHANG, Associate Professor of the Department of Mechanical and Automation Engineering at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK). The team has studied and implemented swarm behaviors on nano-robots, allowing controlled morphological changes and splitting.

Nanoparticles targets kidney disease for drug delivery

Nanoparticles targets kidney disease for drug delivery
Since kidneys are the filtering agents in our body, they are keen to get rid of small particles that they sense do not belong. And if the kidney does not filter out a particle, excreting it through urine, it may be eliminated by the liver, which uses macrophages to search for and get rid of foreign bodies. Researchers at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering, along with colleagues from the Keck School of Medicine at USC, have engineered peptide nanoparticles to outsmart the biological system and target the kidney cells.
