Magnetically-directed nanoparticles could help heal broken bones

When a bone is severely broken in the human body, or a bone-fused prosthesis is implanted, a bone graft is also often required to ensure a solid mechanical repair. However, a graft that removes bone from another area of the… Read more →

Load bearing, biodegradable implants can reduce the number of second surgeries

No other joint in the human body is as highly mobile as is the shoulder. However, it is also very sensitive and prone to injury, with athletes being particularly affected. The most common complaints include tendon rupture, which have to… Read more →

New study identifies crizotinib drug as possible new coating for drug-eluting stents

A new study has identified an FDA approved cancer drug, crizotinib, as a possible new coating for drug-eluting stents. Researchers found that crizotinib in mice helped prevent the narrowing of blood vessels after stenting without affecting the blood vessel lining.… Read more →

Research team developing injectable treatment for soldiers wounded in battle

Internal bleeding is a leading cause of death on the battlefield, but a new, injectable material developed by team of researchers from Texas A&M University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology could buy wounded soldiers the time they need to… Read more →

Nanotechnology cancer research could reduce side effects from chemotherapy

Researchers are working on a new system that could decrease the negative effects of cancer drugs on patients.

Wichita State University (WSU) professors Ramazan Asmatulu, Paul Wooley and Shang-You Yang – along with several graduate students – are collaborating on research… Read more →

Artificial muscle can “remember” movements

Researchers from the Univ. of Cambridge have developed artificial muscles which can learn and recall specific movements, the first time that motion control and memory have been combined in a synthetic material. The muscles, made from smooth plastic, could eventually… Read more →

ETH researchers develop a thought-controlled genetic interface

We’ve seen a lot of interesting experiments with EEG recently. Researchers have used these brain signals to fly a toy helicopter, make a rat’s tail twitch, operate a tablet computer, and get a paraplegic wearing an exoskeleton to kick a… Read more →

New multi-specimen perfusion bioreactor for reliable tissue growth introduced by Bose

Bose Corporation has introduced the 3DCulturePro™ system, a new multi-specimen perfusion bioreactor designed for biologists, biomedical researchers and scientists who require reproducible and reliable tissue growth. The 3DCulturePro system supports cell growth and 3D tissue culture in an easy-to-use, scalable… Read more →

Amedica, Spinal Kinetics sign multi-year OEM agreement for silicon nitride spinal implants

Amedica Corporation (Nasdaq:AMDA), a biomaterial company that has developed silicon nitride ceramics as a material platform to manufacture and commercialize orthopedic implants, is pleased to announce that it has entered into a multi-year original equipment manufacturer (OEM) agreement with Spinal… Read more →
