Gel directs nerve cells

Dear Sir or Madam,

Injuries of the nerves often cause permanent damage, because the nerve fibers do not grow together properly. This is why biomedical research is looking for ways to promote their growth and healing inside the body. Learn in our news which role the so-called "Anisogel" plays in this.

Enjoy reading,

Shapes, colors, safety – Re-Design in medical technology


Image: Preview of the current video
When is the redesign of a medical device necessary? And what relevance does it have in the medical technology sector? We informed ourselves about this and visited WILDDESIGN Germany and Salvia medical. Here we learned the reasons for redesigning medical devices and we found out what this type of process looks like.

Researchers have often "looked over nature’s shoulder", sometimes with amazing results. Now the lacewing was given this honor. The way they put their eggs on bend-resistant stems, researchers want to use for new films, globules or capsules. COMPAMED has asked how far the process has progressed.

Electrical Engineering & Nanotechnology

Nano-SPEARs gently measure electrical signals in small animals

Microscopic probes developed at Rice University have simplified the process of measuring electrical activity in individual cells of small living animals. The technique allows a single animal like a worm to be tested again and again and could revolutionize data-gathering for disease characterization and drug interactions.

A simple sniff

Delivering life-saving drugs directly to the brain in a safe and effective way is a challenge for medical providers. One key reason: the blood-brain barrier, which protects the brain from tissue-specific drug delivery. Methods such as an injection or a pill aren't as precise or immediate as doctors might prefer, and ensuring delivery right to the brain often requires invasive, risky techniques.

How do metals interact with DNA?

To fight cancer, every year thousands of chemical substances are screened for their potential effects on tumor cells. Once a compound able to inhibit cancer cell growth is found, it still takes several years of research until the drug gets approved and can be applied to patients.
