Photo: gold nanonparticules [28/10/2014] A miniature device can measure a patient's blood for methotrexate, a commonly used but potentially toxic cancer drug. Just as accurate and ten times less expensive than equipment currently used in hospitals, this nanoscale device has an optical system that can rapidly gauge the optimal dose of methotrexate a patient needs, while minimizing the drug's adverse effects.

Graphic: the transparent liquid bandage [22/10/2014] Inspired by a desire to help wounded soldiers, an international, multidisciplinary team of researchers led by Assistant Professor Conor L. Evans at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine of Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and Harvard Medical School (HMS) has created a paint-on, see-through, "smart" bandage that glows to indicate a wound's tissue oxygenation concentration.'Smart' bandage emits phosphorescent glow for healing below - Read more

Continuous glucose monitoring: “Our method is based on the principles of infrared photometry“

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[22/10/2014] Patients in intensive care units do not just have to struggle with the consequences of a severe injury or disease – they are also subject to acute glucose fluctuations that compromise the healing success. These sometimes happen so quickly that they cannot be caught in time with existing discrete measurement methods.Continuous glucose monitoring: “Our method is based on the principles of infrared photometry“ - Read more
