In today's Nanotechnology SciPol Daily, 3D printing with metal to make surgical implants; 3D printing with copper nanoparticles to resist oxidation; and a nanotechnology-based test for prostate cancer.
In today's Genetics / Genomics SciPol Daily, a non-GMO, low-nicotine tobacco; how gut bacteria might limit certain cancer drugs; and new research from the annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology.
STAT – Doctors are reporting unprecedented success from a new cell and gene therapy for multiple myeloma, a blood cancer that’s on the rise. Every patient responded and all but two were in some level of remission within two months.
In today's Nanotechnology SciPol Daily, 3D printing with graphene-based ink; a nanoparticle that heats up to fight cancer; more insights into flexible nanowire networks; and work on creating a DNA nanowire.
In today's Genetics / Genomics SciPol Daily, "curing" cancer by detecting it as soon as possible; China's blind eye to GMO crops grown in their country; a gene therapy to stop some severe allergies; and a cancer doctor who is running for Congress.
Kaiser Health News – Less and less of the research presented at a prominent cancer conference is supported by the National Institutes of Health, a development that some of the country’s top scientists see as a worrisome trend.
In today's Nanotechnology SciPol Daily, a nanomotor containing an antitumor drug; another method of improving nanoparticle drug delivery to tumors; and physical properties of thin sheets of diamond.
Medical Xpress – A research team has identified a surprising new role for the immune cells called macrophages—improving the effectiveness of nanoparticle-delivered cancer therapies.
POLITICO – House Speaker Paul Ryan has named Patrick Soon-Shiong, a controversial billionaire scientist, to a committee that will advise the Trump administration on policy around health information technology.
In today's Genetics / Genomics SciPol Daily, an FDA panel recommending approval of a breast cancer drug; open-source software from Broad for genomic analysis; the science of getting a sunburn; and how rare genetic mutations can lead to heart disease drugs.
Food and Drug Administration – The FDA granted accelerated approval to a treatment for patients whose cancers have a specific genetic feature—the first time for an approval based on a common biomarker rather than the location in the body where the tumor originated.
In today's Nanotechnology SciPol Daily, nano-scale magnetic materials for quantum computing; nanocatalysts that generate power from polluted air; a water-repellant mateiral that sheds like a snake when its damaged; and an explainer on nanomedicine.
