Students Create Biodegradable Feminine Pad

A group of engineering students in Utah developed a new feminine hygiene pad that, unlike most such products today, is made of fully natural materials and 100 percent biodegradable. . . . → Read More: Students Create Biodegradable Feminine Pad

Trial to Test Spherical Nanotech Brain Cancer Drug

An early-stage clinical trial will soon begin testing spherically-shaped nanoscale particles to treat glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer. . . . → Read More: Trial to Test Spherical Nanotech Brain Cancer Drug

Synthetic Retina Developed with Natural Materials

A chemistry lab in the U.K. developed a synthetic retina made of natural materials resembling human tissue that in lab tests detects static, moving, and grey-scale images. . . . → Read More: Synthetic Retina Developed with Natural Materials

Paper-Metal Antimicrobial Layers Designed

A lab at Rutgers University devised a method for sending an electric current through inexpensive paper and metal layered surfaces, which in lab tests kills harmful microbes. . . . → Read More: Paper-Metal Antimicrobial Layers Designed

NSF Supports Chip Enabling Low-Power Electronics

An engineering lab at University of Texas in San Antonio received a grant to assess the commercial potential for a chip that lets electronic devices work with much less power. . . . → Read More: NSF Supports Chip Enabling Low-Power Electronics

Nanoparticle Vaccine Stops Tumor Growth

Researchers in Texas designed a cancer vaccine with nanoscale particles that in lab mice stimulates the immune system and stops the growth of several types of tumors. . . . → Read More: Nanoparticle Vaccine Stops Tumor Growth

Nanoparticles Boost T-Cells to Fight Leukemia

A cancer research lab designed a process to treat leukemia by reprogramming cells in the immune system with genes on nanoscale biodegradable particles. . . . → Read More: Nanoparticles Boost T-Cells to Fight Leukemia

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
