Therapeutic screening for Alzheimer’s disease

05-Dec-2013

Scientists in Canada and the United States have developed a chip sensor for monitoring how drug candidates alter amyloid-β peptide aggregation that they hope could be used to find new treatments for Alzheimer’s disease. Research into Alzheimer’s disease has shown that the self-aggregation of the ...

Using bacteria to make electrodes

05-Dec-2013

Scientists in France have produced hematite using a bacterial pathway for use as an electrode material in Li-ion technologies. Currently, most commercial electrode materials for Li-ion technologies are prepared using the ceramic method, which requires long heating periods at high temperatures ...

Moving the MRI goalposts

28-Nov-2013

Scientists in the UK have developed a new class of MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) agents that promise to deliver clearer images more quickly. Chemical shifts from proton NMR normally fall between 0-12ppm, but water and fat resonate at 4.7 and 1.3ppm respectively, causing noise that can overlap ...

High-throughput drug screening in 3D

06-Nov-2013

Scientists in China have developed a simple microchip that enables quick and inexpensive high-throughput screening of potential drug candidates in 3D cell cultures. Scientists often use cell-based high-throughput screening in the first stage of drug design as a technique to quickly identify the ...

Detecting bacteria on paper

30-Oct-2013

Scientists in Canada have developed a low-cost, portable, paper-based device for detecting antibiotic-resistant bacteria that could be used in the field in remote areas to characterise infectious diseases and assess food and water quality. The scientists used a paper support to hold wax-patterned ...

Monitoring kidney disease on a smart phone

17-Sep-2013

Researchers in the United States have developed a hand-held ‘albumin tester’ integrated with a smart phone for diagnosing and monitoring kidney disease. The lightweight device measures albumin levels in urine. The system, which could be used by kidney disease patients at home, integrates an ...

Better separations with more permeable membranes

17-Sep-2013

Researchers in the United States have developed a new type of nanocomposite ultrafiltration membrane that overcomes the usual trade-off between selectivity and liquid permeability associated with ultrafiltration membranes. When designing a membrane for the ultrafiltration of proteins from a ...

Biomarkers can identify ethnicity at the crime scene

17-Sep-2013

A team of scientists in the United States and Germany have developed a biocatalytic assay that can rapidly identify ethnic origin from body fluid samples on-site at the crime scene. Methods for profiling samples from biological samples taken from crime scenes, such as DNA/RNA analysis, are ...

Next-generation vascular stents

17-Sep-2013

A team of scientists from the United States and China has developed magnesium alloy stents for the treatment of hardening arteries that are biocompatible and degradable. Atherosclerosis is a pre-cursor to heart disease that occurs when artery walls thicken due to a build-up of cholesterol. It can ...

Hydrogel treatment that targets tumours

17-Sep-2013

Scientists in China have developed injectable hydrogels that can deliver four times the amount of the anti-cancer drug Taxol, compared to intravenous administration. Taxol is used to treat many forms of cancer, including breast, lung and ovarian cancers. It is typically administered by ...
