Spin-Off Creates Enzyme to Prevent Celiac Disease

A spin-off enterprise from University of Washington is developing a synthetic enzyme that prevents dietary gluten from triggering symptoms of celiac disease. . . . → Read More: Spin-Off Creates Enzyme to Prevent Celiac Disease

Peptide-Infused Gel Shown to Heal Chronic Wounds

A tissue engineering group developed a gel material infused with a synthetic peptide that in lab cultures and animals healed chronic diabetic wounds faster than a current commercial treatment. . . . → Read More: Peptide-Infused Gel Shown to Heal Chronic Wounds

Room-Temperature Vaccine Storage Techniques Devised

Vaccines against viral diseases today need to be kept refrigerated to prevent spoilage, which raises costs and often prevents their widespread use in many developing regions. A team of materials scientists at Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland, or EPFL, proposes methods for storing vaccines without refrigeration for many days. . . . → Read More: Room-Temperature Vaccine Storage Techniques Devised

Biodegradable Capsule Designed for Hemophilia Drug

A chemical engineering group designed a capsule to deliver blood coagulating proteins for people with hemophilia B who now require injections or infusions. . . . → Read More: Biodegradable Capsule Designed for Hemophilia Drug

Nylon Fibers Given Muscle-Like Bending Properties

Research engineers at MIT designed a process that gives ordinary nylon fibers the ability to bend and flex like artificial muscles. . . . → Read More: Nylon Fibers Given Muscle-Like Bending Properties

Nanotech Material Found Having Anti-Bacterial Properties

A synthetic porous material developed to deliver drugs to the skin was shown in lab tests to prevent the growth of bacteria on its surfaces. . . . → Read More: Nanotech Material Found Having Anti-Bacterial Properties

RNA Drug Delivery Technique Shown Safe in Monkeys

A biotechnology company reports a drug delivery method combining nanoscale lipid particles and biocompatible polymers enables the safe production of synthetic RNA-based proteins in monkeys. . . . → Read More: RNA Drug Delivery Technique Shown Safe in Monkeys
