Nanomedicine and Pregnancy

Nanotechnology, when specifically applied to the field of medicine, qualifies as nanomedicine. The term is pretty broad and encompasses several medical applications of nanomaterials as well as nanoelectronic biosensors. A nanometer is the millionth part of a millimeter, and it is almost impossible for human beings to even imagine working with materials with such dimensions. […]

Colon cancer warning signs

A lot of patients suffering from colon cancer might well present no symptoms or signs during the earliest stages of the condition. When symptoms do eventually present, they can be many and varied, and can very much depend upon the size of the affliction, how far it has spread and also its actual location. It […]

Prostate cancer symptoms

Prostate cancer has a number of symptoms, and it should be remembered that the most typical prostate cancer symptoms and those of a non-cancerous enlarged prostate are identical. As a result, medical advice should be sought as soon as possible on identification of any such symptoms. These symptoms include the sudden need to rush to […]

How much money is spent on cancer research

Cancer research is typically invested in by a number of different individuals, groups or organizations worldwide in the hopes of developing both treatment and cure for the disease. The state of California, for instance, has reportedly invested $10-12 million in direct cancer research annually, while the National Cancer Institute (NCI) within the United States has […]

How many people die from cancer each year

While cancer death statistics can vary from place to place it is generally estimated that roughly 7.2 to 7.5 million people worldwide die from cancer each year. In the United States alone where cancer death statistics are highly monitored each year has seen a steady death rate of 550,000 to 600,000 people year after year, […]

The ICPC Nanonet project (EU funded under FP7) offers you a free open access Nano Archive of nearly 7,000 items including many full texts at http://www.nanoarchive.org. Please contact me if you would like to archive your research and I will create an editor's account for you. I am also interested in communicating with researchers in sub-Saharan Africa for an annual region report. Join the international network at http://www.icpc-nanonet.org. Lesley

Multifunctional Nanomedicine:
Opportunity for Targeted Drug and Gene Delivery
May 29, 2009

Dr. AmijiFeatured guest speaker:
Mansoor M. Amiji, Ph.D.

Professor and Interim Chair of the Pharmaceutical Sciences Department and Co-Director of Nanomedicine Education and Research Consortium (NERC) at Northeastern University

Webinar Abstract
For many diseases such as cancer, overcoming biologic barriers and target specific delivery are key treatment challenges. Others require robust and highly specific intracellular delivery strategy. The webinar will cover...

* Overview of recent work in nanotechnology for target specific delivery of drugs and genes (polymers, liposomes, metal-based nanoplatforms)
* Biodegradable polymers for systemic delivery of hydrophobic anticancer drugs and therapeutic genes
* Nanoemulsions (using omega-3 oils) to facilitate drug delivery across different biological barriers
* Nanotechnology platforms for systemic and oral gene delivery for anti-angiogenesis and IBD, respectively

After his presentation, Dr. Amiji will field attendee questions.

Researchers at the University of Virginia have discovered a method for destroying tumor cells by using nanoparticles and light. Wensha Yang’s technique is actually dealing with quantum dots. Quantum dots are semiconductor nanoforms which can emit light when exposed to radiation (ultra-violet). The researchers also discovered that the light is being emitted when exposed to x-rays (cancer therapy). That’s why this method is great for treating cancer.

Photofrin (approved by FDA) is the compound which acts as photosensitizer. It gets absorbed by cancer cells. When those cells get exposed to light, the compound becomes active and kills the cancer cells.

Yang has described this method in his talk called “Enhanced Energy Transfer From Mega-Voltage Radiation to the Tumor Cell Killing Singlet Oxygen by Semiconductive Nanoparticles” which took place on Tuesday, July 29, 2008.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
