Malaria vaccine: An elusive dream?

Recently, in a rather unfortunate development, Malaria vaccine stumbled along its PATH (pun intended!). RTS,S/AS01E aka Mosquirix-the most advanced and the first ever malarial vaccine in a phase II clinical trial, waned over time. The results were published in the March 21weekly issue of the New England Journal of medicine. This study was supported by […]

Gold centered nano-spheres have been shown to be safe in mouse model

Gold-centered nanospheres have been show to be administered safely by two routes in a mouse study led by investigators at the Stanford University School of Medecine. This is the first step that would allow further studies into nanotoxicology possibly leading to clinical trials within a year and a half. This study brings hope for using […]

Nanotech Drug Developement for longer lived proteins

Protein drugs have become ever more prevalent as treatments for a wide variety of diseases. However the drugs have always come to the market with a flaw. They may be highly specialised for their job and highly effective at doing it. However they are usually only present in the blood for a very short time […]

Current obstacles in Cancer Nanomedicine

Image: Human breast cancer cell tagged with quantum dots Cancer Nanomedicine is developing to cover a wide range of applications from imaging, diagnosing to treating cancers with targeted therapies. Cancer Nanomedicine works on the theory that nanometer sized particles of gold, nanomicelles and quantum dots (QDs) have unique functional properties that differ from other available […]

Nanopaprika for your networking needs! was started back in 2007 by a Hungarian Chemistry PhD student Andras Paszternak. The website provides a great deal of communication and networking tools. Since 2007 the Nanopaprika community has grown to 2000+ members. This virtual ¬†international nanoscience community (TINC) comes equipped with personal chat and scientific forums ranging from Microscopy to Nanomedicine. The […] was started when Earl Boysen (co-author of Nanotechnology for Dummies) observed the need for a website with easy to understand explanations on a wide variety of nanotechnology applications. provides clear and concise information that is accessible to people who may not have expertise in Nanotechnology. It is especially pleasing to see that […]
