A novel method for preparing biodegradable polyurethane nanoparticles that will actively recognize cancer cells.
Different mechanisms for imparting conductivity to non-conductive polymeric biomaterials are discussed in a review by Patton et. al.
A wearable strain sensor is developed that could sensitively respond to cyclic small strain.
A new generation of enzyme-responsive HPMA copolymer-drug conjugates employing a enzyme-sensitive oligopeptide linker was developed. Fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) was applied to investigate the enzyme-responsive performance in both cells and animals.
Researchers in Singapore have developed a strain-sensing actuator for rehabilitation and diagnostic devices for patient mobility and dexterity.
Outbreaks of hepatitis E virus (HEV) are usually associated with contaminated drinking water. To identify virus transmission routes, researchers from Spain analyzed water matrices and food during a recent HEV outbreak (2012–2014) in a refugee camp in South Sudan. The viral indicator human adenovirus (HAdV) was detected in household samples but not in samples from […]
A fully edible supercapacitor has been developed from food-grade materials by researchers in the USA.
For the first time n-BG particles are used to investigate their haemostatic efficacy in wound healing applications.
A promising approach for watching cell signaling processes in their physiological context.
