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.

[01/10/2014] Herniated discs can have very different effects: some cause no discomfort and are only discovered by accident; others can cause paralysis or cause patients to be in great pain. For the most part, these problems develop suddenly after an awkward movement – at least that is what patients report.Spinal disc herniation: causal research with the simulator - Read more

Nanodiamonds: “Our goal is not to be able to diagnose a specific disease, but to offer medicine a universal tool“

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[22/09/2014] They are not just “a girl's best friend“, but are also important helpers in medicine: diamonds. Yet the latter are so tiny that they are not visible to the naked eye. Dr. Patrick Happel at the Ruhr University Bochum in Germany studies so-called nanodiamonds. Someday soon, they are supposed to help in significantly improving medical imaging.Nanodiamonds: “Our goal is not to be able to diagnose a specific disease, but to offer medicine a universal tool“ - Read more
