Researchers focus on using Nanoparticles to improve drug delivery in HIV patients

New research led by the University of Liverpool aims to improve the administration and availability of drug therapies to HIV patients through the use of nanotechnology. ┬áThe research, conducted by the collaborative nanomedicine research programme led by Pharmacologist Professor Andrew Owen and Materials Chemist Professor Steve Rannard, examined the use of nanotechnology to improve the… Continue reading Researchers focus on using Nanoparticles to improve drug delivery in HIV patients

Modified bacterial genes used to boost electrical conductivity in human cells

(Durham) Duke University biomedical engineers have harvested genes for ion channels from bacteria that, with a few tweaks, can create and enhance electrical signaling in human cells, making the cells more electrically excitable.┬áThe technique could one day be used to treat cardiac arrhythmia or to restore electrical functions to scarred heart or nervous system tissues.… Continue reading Modified bacterial genes used to boost electrical conductivity in human cells
