Gold Nanoparticles Cancer Treatment Trials At US Veterinary Schools

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…

Question about 3D Printers and Nanodevices

Hello everyone!

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

The Importance Of Using Rodents In The Nanomedical Research

The Importance of Using Rodents in the Nanomedical Research

The use of minor species for the benefits of mankind always has been a controversial topic in modern society. Especially the use of animals for medical research, which is seen by some as a necessary evil in the name of scientific advance while others may think it is probably one the greatest sins mankind can commit against other species. Without entering in a profound ethical debate about the need of using other species for… Continue
