Fighting cancer with trained nanoparticles – ICT&health

It has been known for some time, thanks to cancer research, that certain tumor cells can alter some specific macrophages. Subsequently, these bad macrophages contribute to the growth of a tumor. “Macrophages are cells that act as the vacuum cleaners of your immune system. Normally they trap and destroy invaders, but tumor cells hijack these … Read more

Nygren, Per-Åke – In vivo delivery of CD19 CAR-encoding mRNA to T cells via bioaffinity-programmed lipid nanoparticles (LNP) for a transient CAR T response to B-cell malignancies

Background Methods that allow the body’s own immune cells to attack tumors are very effective. One can e.g. give drugs that block ‘brake molecules’ that tumors produce to just escape an attack from the immune system. Another method involves first isolating a patient’s immune cells, inserting some extra genes into the genome, and then injecting … Read more

The COVID vaccines of the future: they study a combination of protein nanoparticles more effective against the virus

The virus is rapidly evolving, characterized by the appearance of several significant variants. science is not far behind The new variants of COVID-19 showing escape from the immune response and rapid transmission, even in fully vaccinated people, present a critical threat to pandemic control and disease treatment, and have called into question how efficient vaccines … Read more

Production of nanoparticles harmful to the host by bacteria responsible for sepsis | Newsroom

Sorry, this entry is only available in French. OMVs produced by E. coli bacteria responsible for sepsis cause the accumulation of autophagosomes in host cells. Confocal microscopy image of HeLa cells with autophagosomes in green, OMVs in red, and nuclei in blue. France is strongly committed to the fight against sepsis[1]. The Ministry of Solidarity … Read more

Study Reveals Nanoplastic Pollution Detected for the First Time at Earth’s Pole

KOMPAS.com – Pollution nanoplastics has been detected in the area the poles of the Earth for the first time. The findings of this study indicate that now these tiny particles have spread all over the world. Pollution nanoparticles Plastic smaller and more toxic than microplastics. Nanoplastics are highly toxicologically active compared to microplastics, but the … Read more

Nanoparticles are tested to develop more powerful vaccines

A new nanoparticle adjuvant that may be more potent than others currently in use Researchers from MIT, the La Jolla Institute of Immunology and other institutions designed a new nanoparticle adjuvant that may be more potent than others currently in use. Studies in mice showed that antibody production was significantly improved after vaccination against some … Read more
