Nanomedicine Treatment Reduces Mouse Tumour After One Administration

Bioengineers at Duke University have developed a simple and importantly inexpensive method for loading nano-scale delivery vehicles with cancer drug payloads. This nanoformulation was shown to eliminate tumours after a single treatment. In a great step forward for limiting toxicity the nano-scale delivery vehicle breaks down into harmless byproducts after delivery of the drug. These nano-delivery [...]

CLINAM: Third conference For Clinical Nanomedicine

CLINAM: The third conference for clinical nanomedicine will give an insight into state of the art clinical nanomedicine and will report the most recent findings in the field. The conference will introduce the unsolved medical problems that are awaiting novel techniques for addressing them. From this base the debate will turn to how nanotechnologies involvement could [...]

Nanomedicine Breast Cancer Research Receives Funding

Professor Errki Ruoslahti of the University of California Santa Barbara’s Burnham Institute for Medical Research has been awarded $2.8 million to develop ‘Hybrid nanotechnologies for detection and synergistic therapies of breast cancer’. The research team are developing new diagnostic tools to improve early detection, and reduce unnecessary procedures. This will be achieved through the use [...]
