Corn, Shellfish Ingredients Enable DNA Vaccine Pills

Biomaterials researchers discovered substances from corn and shellfish can package genetic material to pass through the digestive system, making possible vaccines as pills rather than injections. . . . → Read More: Corn, Shellfish Ingredients Enable DNA Vaccine Pills

Prodrugs Designed to Better Target Cancer Therapies

A delivery mechanism is being developed to package cancer drugs in a nanoscale precursor state that reacts only in tumor regions, to protect against adverse effects. . . . → Read More: Prodrugs Designed to Better Target Cancer Therapies

Inhaled Drug Shown Feasible for Postpartum Bleeding

Results from a clinical trial show a dry-powder inhaled form of the drug oxytocin works in the body much like the injected form, given to prevent postpartum hemorrhage, excessive bleeding in some women after childbirth. . . . → Read More: Inhaled Drug Shown Feasible for Postpartum Bleeding

Protein IDed to Cut Implanted Device Immune Reactions

Researchers at MIT identified a protein playing a key role in promoting the scar tissue that forms from immune reactions to implanted medical devices, and blocking actions of this protein can prevent scar tissue from forming on materials often used with implants. . . . → Read More: Protein IDed to Cut Implanted Device Immune Reactions

Trial Shows Bioactive Glass Stops Bone Infections

Grafts of glass-based substitute material were shown in a clinical trial to stop bacterial bone infections from osteomyelitis, in most cases without additional antibiotics. . . . → Read More: Trial Shows Bioactive Glass Stops Bone Infections

Nanotech Gel Designed to Treat Snake Bites

A team from University of California in Irvine developed a snake bite treatment that in lab tests stops venom more effectively and at lower cost than current antidotes. . . . → Read More: Nanotech Gel Designed to Treat Snake Bites

Process Converts Food Waste to Auto Tire Materials

Agricultural scientists in Ohio are developing a process for converting common food waste into materials used in car tires, and filed a patent for these techniques. . . . → Read More: Process Converts Food Waste to Auto Tire Materials

DNA Tags Speed Nanoparticle Gene Therapy Discovery

Biomedical engineers developed a technique with unique DNA identifiers that makes possible faster screening of gene therapies delivered with nanoscale particles. . . . → Read More: DNA Tags Speed Nanoparticle Gene Therapy Discovery

Univ. Spin-Off Develops Lower Cost 3-D Metal Printing

A spin-off enterprise from University at Buffalo engineering school developed a machine that produces lower-cost aluminum parts with three-dimensional liquid metal printing. . . . → Read More: Univ. Spin-Off Develops Lower Cost 3-D Metal Printing

RNA-Nanoparticle Spray Protects Against Plant Viruses

Plant scientists combined synthetic genetic material with clay nanoparticles, which when sprayed on plants provides enduring protection against viruses. . . . → Read More: RNA-Nanoparticle Spray Protects Against Plant Viruses
