Researchers Use New AI Techniques in Clinical Trials for Personalized Cancer Treatment

Researchers are finding new ways to use artificial intelligence and nanotechnology to enhance treatments, from routine dental techniques to attacking cancerous tissue. At the AVS 65th International Symposium and Exhibition, being held Oct. 21-26, 2018, in Long Beach, California, Dean Ho will present the results of two clinical trials that show how AI-enabled personalized medical […]

Magnetic Nanoparticles Leap From Lab Bench to Breast Cancer Clinical Trials

 Sandia National Laboratories materials chemist Dale Huber has been working on the challenge of making iron-based nanoparticles the exact same size for 15 years. Now, he and his long-term collaborators at Imagion Biosystems will use these magnetic nanoparticles for their first breast cancer clinical trial later this year. The nanoparticles stick to breast cancer cells, allowing the […]

Stealth Pig Cells May Hold The Key To Treating Diabetes In Humans

University of Alabama at Birmingham researchers are exploring ways to wrap pig tissue with a protective coating to ultimately fight diabetes in humans. The nano-thin bilayers of protective material are meant to deter or prevent immune rejection. The ultimate goal: transplant insulin-producing cell-clusters from pigs into humans to treat Type 1 diabetes. In preclinical work […]

From Nanotechnology, A Better Prognostic Tool For Brain Cancer

A new nano-fabricated platform for observing brain cancer cells provides a much more detailed look at how the cells migrate and a more accurate post-surgery prognosis for brain cancer (glioblastoma) patients. By creating an environment similar to the one that glioblastoma cells naturally navigate, Yale and Hopkins researchers could accurately predict the clinical outcomes of […]
