Four U.S veterinary teaching hospitals are conducting clinical trials to evaluate gold nanoparticles combined with targeted laser treatment for solid tumors in cats and dogs. The procedure involves infusing the animal with gold nanoparticles that congregate in the vasculature of tumors but otherwise clear the body within 36 hours. Then clinicians use targeted laser treatment to heat the particles in an effort to damage the tumor cells. The treatment is promising and could be useful in…Continue
Great information about new procedure done at the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine. The use of Cetuximab combined with a iron-oxide magnetic nanoparticle seems very promising in the treatment of glioblastomas in dogs.

I just wondering if with all the advances on 3D printer technology, can we adapt them to replicate nanodevices in a faster and cheaper way? Is somebody working or doing research about the potential use of 3D printers in the field of nanotechnology?

This is a great place to learn and make new friends! The other day I learned from my new friend David Lindel that thanks to nanotechnology astronaut’s suits is going to be more flexible and comfortable to wear. This can facilitate work in outer space. I am just a common citizen without the technical background or expertise required in the space industry. I do my living as a small animal veterinarian actually practicing in the state of Georgia. Since… Continue
