Amyloid plaques can cling to newly developed bowl-shaped nanoparticles. The findings provide a new way to study the Alzheimer's related plaques and provides novel treatment options for dementia.
A new nanoparticle drug-delivery system resulted in unprecedented siRNA penetration across the intact blood-brain barrier. Researchers say the system could help doctors to treat secondary injuries associated with TBI that can result in Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative disorders.
Researchers have developed a new approach to prevent amyloid plaque formation by engineering a nanodevice that captures the peptides before they can assemble. The silica nanodevice might be a new tool in the treatment and prevention of Alzheimer's disease and other neurodegenerative diseases associated with amyloid-beta.
Newly designed microbots can deliver vital drugs throughout the human body. The microbots can traverse the body and penetrate bodily mucus to efficiently deliver medications to target sites.
Researchers use nanotech to enhance vision in mice, enabling them to see infrared light as well as visible light.
A new device that uses fast flowing fluids to insert nanotubes into the brain may be used to help treat a number of neurological diseases, researchers say.
An international team of researchers have created remote controlled nanobots from a biodegradable material that they believe could assist doctors in diagnosing diseases and delivering drugs to target sites.
Using titanate nanowires treated with cerebrolysin, researchers have been able to target delivery to the brain and through the central nervous system. Researchers report the use of nanowires to deliver drugs could be beneficial in the treatment of Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and other neurodegenerative diseases.
Researchers have developed nanowires that can record the electrical activity of neurons in fine detail. The technology will allow for better investigation as to how the brain works.
A new nanocarrier meets the size and stability to effectively pass the BBB and deliver drugs to glioblastoma multiforme brain cancer.
