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 […]

Tiny Cell-sized Microbots Could Help in Drug Delivery

Scientists have created wireless bug-shaped microrobots using nanofabrication techniques that turns a 4-inch specialized silicon wafer into a million microscopic robots in just weeks. The microbots, developed by University of Pennsylvania researchers, can walk, survive in harsh environments, and are tiny enough to be injected through an ordinary hypodermic needle, that they may have potential […]
