Drug makers chase cancer stem cells

As evidence implicating stem cells in cancer mounts, drug makers are taking notice. GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) in December formed a strategic alliance worth up to $1.4 billion with OncoMed Pharmaceuticals, of Redwood City, California. The deal

gives GSK an option to license four of OncoMed's antibody candidates

developed to target cancer stem cells, one of which is scheduled to

enter clinical trials in June.

The… Continue

Anthrax investigation still yielding findings

Chemical composition of spores doesn't match suspect flask.

The deadly bacterial spores mailed to victims in the US anthrax attacks, scientists say, share a chemical 'fingerprint' that is not found in

bacteria from the flask linked to Bruce Ivins, the biodefence

researcher implicated in the crime.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) alleges that Ivins, who committed suicide last July, was the person responsible for…

Nanoparticles guide genes through the bloodstream

Scientists from University of Bonn in Germany have designed a technique that allows them to repair damaged arteries’ tissue. The technique is based on

sending genes and healthy cells through the bloodstream to the place

that needs to be repaired.

Earlier, the “problem” was that it was unknown what quantity of healthy cells to send in order to repair the tissue. Small…

What is nanomedicine

Nanomedicine is a subfield of nanotechnology. It is often defined as the repair, construction and control of human biological systems using devices

built upon nanotechnology standards. Basically, nanomedicine is the

medical application of nanotechnology. Nanostructured materials,

engineered enzymes and many other products of biotechnology will be

very useful in the future. Of course, the full potential…

Ultra-Fast Curing, Thermally Stable Epoxy Meets NASA Low Outgassing Specifications

Master Bond EP65HT-1 combines high temperature

resistance and fast room temperature curing in a NASA low outgassing

approved epoxy. It also offers superior electrical insulation

capabilities and strong chemical resistance.

With an extremely high glass transition temperature exceeding 125ºC, EP65HT-1 features

fast cure times, even when mixed in small masses. For example, a 10-20

gram mass will cure in 3-5 minutes at room temperature. It…

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
