This is how nanoparticles get into blood and damage heart – Read

In experiments using harmless ultra-fine particles of gold, the scientists were able for the first time to track how such nanoparticles are breathed in, pass through the lungs and then gain access to the blood.

Gold nanoparticles helps in delivering drugs into cancer cells

Gold nanoparticles helps in delivering drugs into cancer cells

A recent research found that gold nanoparticles helps in delivering a drug right into the heart of cancer cells.

Nanoparticle injections hold hope for osteoarthritis patients

US researchers have designed a peptide-based nanoparticle, which when injected into an injured joint will not only suppress the inflammation immediately but also reduce the destruction of cartilage, thus lowering the risk for osteoarthritis.

A nanodrug can help spot early stage cancer: Scientists

After properly identifying faulty cells, the drug breaches those cells - a process that only affects the tumour cells and leaves the rest of the organism undisturbed.

Shape-shifting nanoparticles to deliver drugs

Professor Warren Chan from the University of Toronto has spent the last decade figuring out how to deliver chemotherapy drugs into tumours - and nowhere else.

Now, a `super-strong` metal that is also light

A newly developed blend of magnesium and ceramic silicon carbide nanoparticles is likely to bring about a revolution in the production of airplanes, spacecraft and cars.

Inexpensive way to clean water from oil sands wastewater

Water in tailing ponds left to biodegrade naturally in the environment still contains these contaminants decades later.

New method removes nanoparticles from blood with ease

A team of US engineers has developed a new technology that uses an electrical field to easily and quickly isolate drug-delivery nanoparticles from the blood.

'Healthier' sunscreen that does not penetrate skin developed

Researchers have used nanoparticles to develop a sunscreen that does not penetrate the skin, eliminating serious health concerns associated with commercial sunblocks.

Indian-origin scientist designs tiny 'vehicle' to drive drugs to targets

With the side-effects of therapy being one of the major stumbling blocks in advancing treatment for deadly diseases, a team of scientists, including one of Indian origin, has designed a "nanovehicle" that could drive drugs straight to their destinations - the diseased tissues - thereby sparing other healthy organs from any unintended effects.

Nanoparticles new age answer to corrosion: Expert

Terming nanoparticles as the latest answer to combating corrosion, a senior scientist Thursday urged the industries concerned to use them as a "smart coating" option.

Now fixing cell phone wounds closer to reality

A new method, dubbed “repair-and-go” could soon be able to heal small-scale scratches on digital device surfaces, researchers say.

Nanoparticles to help mop up more solar energy

An alternative that can make use of all of the sunlight, is the solar thermal collector.

Coloured lights can sculpt nanoparticles

In a new research, scientists have shown that choosing the color of an LED light bulb can select the shape of nanoparticles growing out of a solution of silver.
