Screw cancer: Microneedle sticks it to cancer tissue

Drug-loaded microrobotic needle effectively targets and remains attached to cancerous tissue in lab experiments without needing continuous application of a magnetic field, allowing more precise drug delivery

Nanoparticle-based thermal treatment cures intestinal cancer in mice

Scientists presented the test results of an innovative oncotherapy technology based on hyperthermia‚ÄĒheating nanoparticles that have been introduced into a tumour to kill it. A drug based on cobalt ferrite nanoparticles cured 100% of the mice with intestinal cancer from the experimental group

Protecting DNA origami for anti-cancer drug delivery

Scientists designed a tunable peptide-like molecular coating that enables 3-D DNA nanostructures to maintain their structural integrity and functionality in different physiological environments relevant to drug delivery and other biomedical applications

Stem cells and nerves interact in tissue regeneration and cancer progression

Researchers show that different stem cell populations are innervated in distinct ways. Innervation may therefore be crucial for proper tissue regeneration. They also demonstrate that cancer stem cells likewise establish contacts with nerves. Targeting tumor innervation could thus lead to new cancer therapies
