DNA nanorobots target HER2-positive breast cancer cells

12.6.2019   |   Press monitoring

According to the Mayo Clinic, about 20% of breast cancers make abnormally high levels of a protein called human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2). When displayed on the surface of cancer cells, this signaling protein helps them proliferate uncontrollably and is linked with a poor prognosis. Now, researchers have developed a DNA nanorobot...

A drop of stem cells restores mice’s sense of smell

10.6.2019   |   Press monitoring

A team of researchers has restored the sense of smell in a group of mice by grafting stem cells into the rodents’ noses according to new results published in Stem Cell Reports. The stem cells, which are known as “globose basal cells,” are precursors to fully developed olfactory neurons. Once implanted into mice through a simple “nose drop...

Nanotechnology treatment shows promise against multiple sclerosis

7.6.2019   |   Press monitoring

A nanotechnology treatment derived from bone marrow stem cells has reversed multiple sclerosis symptoms in mice and could eventually be used to help humans, according to a new study led by University of California, Irvine researchers. In past experiments, intravenously injected stem cells – taken from bone marrow and activated with interferon...

Harvard breakthrough shows stem cells can be genetically edited in the body

5.6.2019   |   Press monitoring

We owe our long lives to stem cells, which are nestled deep inside certain tissues in the body and constantly replace old cells. In recent years scientists have been able to correct genetic diseases by removing these stem cells, editing their genomes and then implanting them back into the patient, but that adds complications. Now, new research led...

Nordic microalgae cleans wastewater and produces biodiesel

3.6.2019   |   Press monitoring

Green microalgae are photosynthetic water organisms that use sunlight and a few other nutrients to transform CO2 into energy and biomass. Algae biomass is considered a good raw material for the production of biofuels, as these microorganisms can naturally form and store large amounts of lipids, which in turn can be converted into biodiesel. In...

Chemists develop nanoscale bioabsorbable wound dressing

31.5.2019   |   Press monitoring

Scientists at Texas A&M University are harnessing the combined power of organic nanomaterials-based chemistry and a natural product found in crustacean exoskeletons to help bring emergency medicine one step closer to a viable solution for mitigating blood loss, from the hospital to the battlefield. Hemorrhage is a leading cause of death in...

Cranberries join forces with antibiotics to fight bacteria

29.5.2019   |   Press monitoring

The global spread of antibiotic resistance is undermining decades of progress in fighting bacterial infections. Due to the overuse of antibiotics in medicine and agriculture, we are on the cusp of returning to a pre-antibiotic era in which minor infections can once again become deadly. Therefore, countering the fall in antibiotic efficacy by...

Like submicroscopic spacecrafts: Graphene flakes to control neuron aktivity

27.5.2019   |   Press monitoring

Like in a science fiction novel, miniscule spacecrafts able to reach a specific site of the brain and influence the operation of specific types of neurons or drug delivery: Graphene flakes, the subject matter of the new study of the group of SISSA professor Laura Ballerini, open up truly futuristic horizons. Measuring just one millionth of a...

Snakebite crisis gets US$100-million boost for better antivenoms

24.5.2019   |   Press monitoring

Biomedical-research funder the Wellcome Trust has announced an ambitious initiative to improve the treatment of snakebites in poor countries. Snakebites kill tens of thousands of people a year, partly because they are treated with archaic antivenoms that often work only for one species. Wellcome’s ?80-million (US$103-million) programme, announced...

Placental stem cells found to regenerate heart cells after heart attack

22.5.2019   |   Press monitoring

According to the World Health Organization, cardiovascular diseases are the biggest killers of people in modern times, and it's largely due to the heart's inability to repair itself properly. Even if a person survives the initial cardiac arrest event, scar tissue renders the heart less effective at pumping blood and more likely to suffer future...
