Nanoparticles could treat intestinal inflammation

Nanoparticles could treat intestinal inflammation
Nanoparticles designed to block a cell-surface molecule that plays a key role in inflammation could be a safe treatment for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), according to researchers in the Institute for Biomedical Sciences at Georgia State University and Southwest University in China. The scientists developed nanoparticles, or microscopic particles, to reduce the expression of CD98, a glycoprotein that promotes inflammation. Their findings are published in the journal Colloids and Surfaces B: Biointerfaces.

Latest alternatives for personalised medicine

Latest alternatives for personalised medicine
Fraunhofer researchers have developed a particulary flexible additive manufacturing method that allows them to produce bone implants, dentures, surgical tools, or microreactors in almost any conceivable design. At the Medtec medical technology tradeshow in Stuttgart, the scientists from Dresden will show their research results. The small pharmaceutical plant next to the patient's bed is no bigger than a two euro coin.

Platform optimises drug dose combinations

Platform optimises drug dose combinations
  For decades, doctors and scientists have predicted that personalised medicine—tailoring drug doses and combinations to people's specific diseases and body chemistry—would be the future of health care. A team of UCLA bioengineers and surgeons has taken a major step toward that reality.

Is there a computer in the house?

Is there a computer in the house?
Steve Rogerson looks at how the IoT is affecting the medical industry and asks whether the days of the human doctor may be numbered. One of the most prominent areas being impacted by the Internet of Things (IoT) is medical technology, with the promise of remote patient care and people being treated at home whilst being linked to medical staff over various communications links.

Machine makes prescription drugs 'on demand'

Machine makes prescription drugs 'on demand'
Scientists have created a compact machine that can churn out thousands of doses of prescription medication in a day—putting the capabilities of a drug-manufacturing plant into a device the size of a kitchen refrigerator. Experts said the advance could eventually allow on-the-spot drug production in special circumstances—on the battlefield, during epidemics, after natural disasters, or in cases where a drug is needed for a rare medical condition, for instance.

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.
