Micro Transporters Deliver Drugs

Micro Transporters Travel Against The Flow of Blood To Deliver Drugs

In many cases, the precise delivery of drugs into diseased tissue remains a challenge. For example, drug delivery to pancreatic tumors is especially difficult due to its hypovascular and poorly perfused nature. Now, researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Stuttgart, Germany have developed microscopic drug delivery devices that can travel against […]
Adhesive for drug delivery system

Selecting the Right Adhesive Material Is Crucial For An Effective Wearable Drug Delivery System

Wearable drug delivery applications are easy to administer and they offer many benefits like around-the-clock monitoring and proper medical management. To make sure these devices can be worn for the prescribed time period and deliver optimal outcome, they need the right adhesive material. Wearable devices often contain multiple layers of advanced medical materials. Whatever the […]

Smart Microrobots Swim Through Vessels and Adapt to their Surroundings

Delivering drug precisely to the target area of the body has always been a challenge. But that might soon change. One day we may be able to ingest tiny robots that deliver drugs directly to diseased tissue, thanks to research being carried out at Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and ETH Zurich in Switzerland. […]
Microneedle systems

How Microneedle Systems Could Provide Safe, Effective and Painless Drug Delivery

A completely pain-free injection had been a myth to many companies, and that might be the reason they stayed away from developing these types of devices. But now, many companies are trying to take advantage of these systems after the first successful use of microneedle devices for drug delivery into the later stages of clinical […]

Wearable Bioreactor Device Helps Frogs Regenerate ‘Paddle-Like’ limbs

A team of scientists from Tufts University and the University of Florida designed a device that can induce partial hindlimb regeneration in adult frogs by “kick-starting” tissue repair at the amputation site. The researchers used adult aquatic African clawed frogs (Xenopus laevis) for their study. They created a wearable bioreactor attached to the wound site […]
