Latest Magnetic nanoparticles Stories
Graphene, the ultra-strong and highly-conductive material typically thought of as a potential component for electronic devices or advanced composites, could also be used to combat several different forms of cancer, experts from the University of Manchester have discovered.
By loading magnetic nanoparticles with drugs and dressing them in biochemical camouflage, Houston Methodist researchers say they can destroy blood clots 100 to 1,000 times faster than a commonly used clot-busting technique.
Material that could change electronics industry is shown to be very mobile in water and likely to cause negative environmental impacts if spilled
Using magnetically controlled nanoparticles to force tumor cells to 'self-destruct' sounds like science fiction, but could be a future part of cancer treatment.
Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory have developed a general approach for combining different types of nanoparticles to produce large-scale composite materials.
Using nanoparticles and alternating magnetic fields, University of Georgia scientists have found that head and neck cancerous tumor cells in mice can be killed in half an hour without harming healthy cells.
Researchers from North Carolina State University have investigated the viability of a technique called â€œspincastingâ€ for creating thin films of nanoparticles on an underlying substrate â€“ an important step in the creation of materials with a variety of uses, from optics to electronics.
The next big thing in medical diagnostics could be minutes particles of rust, iron oxide, coated with the material from which sand is formed, silicon dioxide.
If you suffer from sepsis, you used to have to wait as much as 48 hours for laboratory findings.
