Pairing pain medicine with metal ions to battle cancer

Fighting chemoresistant cancer remains a huge challenge that scientists are tackling from as many angles as they can. One alternative approach involves pairing two groups of compounds—pain medicine and metal ions—that ...

DNA 'building blocks' pave the way for improved drug delivery

DNA has been used as a 'molecular building block' to construct synthetic bio-inspired pores which will improve the way drugs are delivered and help advance the field of synthetic biology, according to scientists from UCL ...

Lobster colour change mystery solved

For the first time scientists have come up with a precise explanation for why lobsters change colour from blue/black to red when cooked.

Nano packages for anti-cancer drug delivery

Cancer stem cells are resistant to chemotherapy and consequently tend to remain in the body even after a course of treatment has finished, where they can often trigger cancer recurrence or metastasis. A new study by researchers ...

Cancer-killing nanodaisies

NC State researchers have developed a potential new weapon in the fight against cancer: a daisy-shaped drug carrier that's many thousands of times smaller than the period at the end of this sentence.

'Nanodaisies' deliver drug cocktail to cancer cells

(Phys.org) —Biomedical engineering researchers have developed daisy-shaped, nanoscale structures that are made predominantly of anti-cancer drugs and are capable of introducing a "cocktail" of multiple drugs into cancer ...
