Researchers from Michigan State University propose a novel non-invasive magnetic particle imaging (MPI) to monitor chemotherapy release in vivo. This method employs superparamagnetic nanoparticles as the contrast agent to monitor drug release in the body. In this study researchers designed iron oxide nanocomposite loaded with a chemotherapy drug doxorubicin which serves as a drug delivery … Continue reading New technology to monitor chemotherapy using magnetic nanoparticles
Researchers from Environmental Working Group conducted a cumulative assessment of cancer risk due to carcinogenic compounds found in drinking water. They used a novel analytical framework that calculated their combined health impacts. Results of the study showed that these substances would result in more than 100,000 cancer cases nationwide. Findings of the study are published … Continue reading Contaminated tap water and cancer
Professor Peter O'Connor and Dr Maria van Agthoven in the Department of Chemistry have invented a device which makes 2D mass spectrometry - an effective process for analysing and sequencing proteins. This could enable researchers and companies to produce data-driven results on how protein molecules function, more easily and cheaply. 2D mass spectrometry allows chemists … Continue reading Researchers in University of Warwickshire develop 2D mass spectrometry using Linear ion trap.
