Latest Nitrogen compounds Stories
Chemists at the University of California-Santa Cruz say they've developed novel compounds that show promise for photodynamic cancer therapy. The compounds, called dye-sensitized ruthenium nitrosyls, are absorbed by cancer cells and respond to specific wavelengths of light by releasing nitric oxide, which triggers the cancer cells' death, the researchers said. For cancer treatment, you want localized delivery of a very high concentration of nitric oxide, said Professor Pradip Mascharak.
Chemists at the University of California, Santa Cruz, have developed novel compounds that show promise for photodynamic cancer therapy, which uses light-activated drugs to kill tumor cells.
Panel also addresses limitations of current randomized trials MENLO PARK, Calif., June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Apieron, Inc. highlighted recent clinical panel presentations underscoring the positive impact of measuring exhaled nitric oxide (eNO) for treating asthma in adults and children.
Robert F. Furchgott, whose research earned him a share of a Nobel Prize and helped lead to the anti-impotency drug Viagra, has died, a daughter said. Susan Furchgott said her father died Tuesday in Seattle, The Ledger in Lakeland, Fla., reported Saturday.
A new drug-delivery system with an anti-microbial agent may treat potentially deadly drug-resistant staph infections in mice, U.S.
University of Michigan scientists say they are developing a new method of detecting nitric oxide in exhaled breath. Since an elevated concentration of nitric oxide in one's breath is a sign of many diseases -- including lung cancer and tuberculosis -- the researchers said their new technology could prove useful in diagnosing illness and monitoring the effects of treatment. Assistant Professor Anne McNeil and graduate student Jing Chen work with molecular gels consisting of small molecules.
A Boston University School of Medicine study suggests short bursts of nitrites can be beneficial in protecting the heart from stress. The study, researchers said, demonstrated for the first time that short elevations in circulating levels of nitrites are sufficient to have a lasting impact on the heart
