Scientists have successfully programmed nanorobots to target and shrink tumors by cutting off their blood supply, whilst leaving healthy tissue untouched.
 
   Uniforms coated with copper nanoparticles could reduce spread of hospital infectionsUniforms coated with copper nanoparticles could reduce spread of hospital infections
 
Doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals could soon be wearing uniforms brushed with tiny copper nanoparticles to reduce the spread of bacterial infections and viruses, such as Escherichia coli (E. coli), at hospitals.

Specialized nanotechnology could reduce pain, recovery time in oral surgeryA trip to the dentist or orthodontist usually instills a sense of dread in most patients, and that's before the exam even begins. Add to that the fear of oral surgery with a painful recovery, and many people will avoid these visits at all costs.
 
 
 Food scientists develop rapid screening technique to detect pesticide residue in vegetables
 
Food scientists develop rapid screening technique to detect pesticide residue in vegetablesFood scientists from the National University of Singapore developed a rapid and highly sensitive screening technique capable of detecting minute amounts of pyrethroids in vegetables, a common type of synthetic pesticide applied on agricultural crops. The innovative strategy makes use of magnetic nanoparticles to simplify pyrethorid extraction, reducing the screening process to under two hours.

Scientists show that cutting-edge technique can efficiently sort nano-sized particlesA new cellular messenger discovered by Weill Cornell Medicine scientists may help reveal how cancer cells co-opt the body's intercellular delivery service to spread to new locations in the body.
 
 
 Stiffness of cancer cell plasma membrane affects uptake of nanomedicines
 
Stiffness of cancer cell plasma membrane affects uptake of nanomedicinesNanomedicines need to get taken up by diseased cells in order to release their cargo. Cancer cells have altered membrane properties, which hamper their ability to take up nanomedicines.

 Researchers reveal promising method for delivering cancer virotherapy
 
Researchers reveal promising method for delivering cancer virotherapyResearchers at Okayama University report in Scientific Reports a promising method for delivering viral DNA, able to eliminate cancerous cells, to a tumor. The approach, involving encapsulation of the DNA in liposomes, has the potential to enable intravenous delivery of virus-based antitumor agents.

  1. I was diagnose with hpv virus for 5years i broke up with my boyfriend because i contracted the virus from him, luckily i found a herbalist name Dr. onokun everyone testify good of his natural treatment i picked up his address and contacted him. he truly treated me with natural herbs in a week and i got cured. i share this post because ever since i got this treatment I'm perfectly ok with my health. i contacted him through this email.. dronokunherbalcure@gmail.com
