Spelling out cancer on the nanoscale
Tumors start small and stay quiet, yet their intentions are clearly spelled out internally, if we could only read them. No matter how small, every tumor reveals its identity in tiny amounts of abnormally expressed proteins called oncoproteins. Being able to read trace oncoprotein levels from early-stage tumors would speak volumes to physicians and cancer researchers. Enter nano-fluidics and the art of reading a lot from very little.

Multifunctional Nanoparticles Image and Treat Brain Tumors
Combining two promising approaches to diagnosing and treating cancer, a multidisciplinary research team at the University of Michigan has created a targeted multifunctional polymer nanoparticle that successfully images and kills brain tumors in laboratory animals.

NIH Nanomedicine Center draws on NYU School of Medicine expertise
As biomedical science progresses, physicians apply increasingly refined tools to treat disease. Researchers hope it will eventually be possible to use tools based on the emerging field of nanomedicine. The idea is to repair the body on the tiny scale of molecules—at the nano-scale or roughly one millionth the size of an ant—to reach inside cells and fix what may be broken.

Polymer Coating Improves Tumor-Targeting Nanoparticles
Adding a thin coating of the biocompatible polymer poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) to the surface of sulfur-modified, or thiolated, nanoparticles designed to fall apart inside tumors, prolongs the time that the resulting nanoparticles remain in tumors.

Photoswitches could restore sight to blind retinas
The major cause of blindness in this country is the death of rods and cones in the retina, a disease called macular degeneration. A possible new therapy — giving the gift of sight to other retinal cells — received a boost this month by NIH's nanomedicine initiative, which awarded UC Berkeley scientists $6 million to pursue the technique

Immune Cell Communication, Cooperation Keys to Hunting Viruses, Jefferson Immunologists Show
Immunologists at the Kimmel Cancer Center at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia have used nanotechnology to create a novel “biosensor” to solve in part a perplexing problem in immunology: how immune system cells called killer T-cells hunt down invading viruses.
