New Nano Drug Delivery System Eliminates Tumors after Single Treatment

Bioengineers at Duke University have created a way to load cancer drugs into nano-scale delivery modules for targeted delivery to tumors. Their research shows the possibility of destroying tumors in only one treatment. The method is inexpensive and simple. Once the delivery of the drug to the tumor is complete the delivery module dissolves harmlessly […]

Drug Delivery Method Introduced Using Magnetism and Nanotechnology

A new solution to deliver drugs into the body more effectively has been devised using magnetism and nanotechnology. In order to deliver drugs into the body effectively for various medical conditions such as diabetes, cancer and chronic pain, delivering consistent dosage, which could be adjusted, and delivery of this could be turned on and off, […]

Functional Human Germ Cells Created in the Laboratory for the First Time

Stanford University School of Medicine, Center for Human Embryonic Stem Cell Research and Education, has released results of their recent research showing the ability to take embryonic stem cells and prod them to become functional human germ cells, the antecedent to egg and sperm cells. This was done in the laboratory ushering in new possibilities […]
