Study provides proof-of-concept for the oral delivery of nanoparticles. Thoughts health innovators?

It is known that oral administration is a preferred method of drug delivery, and that formulation into nanoparticles can improve drug stability in the harsh gastrointestinal (GI) tract environment. However, diverse conditions in the GI tract, including…

New lung cell type discovered. Thoughts health innovators?

Cystic fibrosis is a genetic-based disorder which primarily affects the lungs.  The gene affected by cystic fibrosis is CFTR (cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator), which controls the movement of salt and water in and out of cells. People…

Engineered cancer cells can track and destroy tumours. Thoughts health innovators?

It is known that cancer cells exhibit a ‘self-homing’ behaviour whereby cells released into the circulation can return to the main tumour site. Therefore, much research has been done to harness this behaviour and use the cells to deliver therapies to the…

Study identifies previously unknown neuronal activity in the gut. Thoughts health innovators?

The enteric nervous system (ENS) is known as the second brain, or the brain in the gut, due to the fact it can operate independently of the central nervous system (CNS). Despite the known role of the ENS in generating motor activity in the colon,…

New nanosensor can live-track a proteins' pathway through the cell. Thoughts health innovators?

Membrane proteins are a foundational component of every cell in the human body and play a vital role in the cell’s structure, metabolism and transport. They ensure that substances, such as proteins, are transported to and from the cell.  It is quite easy…

The dawn of biohybrid robotics is here. Thoughts health innovators?

  The new field of biohybrid robotics involves the use of living tissue amalgamated with robotic structures. Muscle is one such potential component of these robots, hopefully providing independent energy for movement and function. However, in efforts to…
