Biocompatability tests for nanoscale Ormosil particles raises hopes for use as neuro drug delivery agent

By / January 10, 2012

Ormosil particles in axons of fruit fly neurons appear as bright red spots. Even after long-term exposure, the cells and the flies themselves remain unharmed. (Credit: Shermali Gunawardena; PLoS One). Medical researchers and materials scientists have been collaborating in many places to develop novel micro-targeted drug delivery systems, often with multiple functions in mind. For…

Nanodiamonds move into gene therapy

By / September 2, 2009

A team of Northwestern University researchers has figured out a way to use nanodiamonds to deliver DNA for gene-therapy application. By modifying the surface of nanodiamond particles with a special polymer, a group led by Dean Ho found they could reach a delivery efficiency that is 70 times greater than that of a conventional standard…
