Drugs used to treat blindness-causing disorders could be successfully administered by eye drops rather than unpleasant and expensive eye injections.
G. Han and co-workers have reported real-time recording of tuned upconversion nanoparticles mediating rapid photoactivation down to just a few cells.
Nanoparticles can carry two different anti-cancer drugs and deliver them to separate parts of the cancer cell where they will be most effective.
Physicists have developed a “planet-satellite model” to precisely connect and arrange nanoparticles in three-dimensional structures.
Researchs show that combining nanoparticles and DNA nanotechnology can amplify the signal obtained from imaging the extracellular matrix.
Fumed silica nanoparticles are functionalised to have ‘tethering’ proteins and link bioactive groups to induce biomimicry.
