EUROPEAN RESEARCH COUNCIL 25/10/16 Breast cancer month: Nanoparticles, a trap against cancer

In my lab we design nanoparticles – known as TrojaNanoHorses (TNH) – which are engineered to be biomimetic, meaning that they can be injected into the bloodstream without causing immune reactions within the receiving body, that is, the tumour. The idea is that of the Greek myth of the Trojan Horse, which is not recognized as dangerous, hence is taken inside the city.

TG TECHNO 05/06/15 Cost-effective risk assessment of nanomaterials may be feasible

RIVM has commissioned the development of a strategy to evaluate the potential for read-across in case of missing data for nanomaterials with a focus on fulfilling data requirements in regulatory frameworks. Testing for the full set of effects that chemicals can have on humans and on other species like fish requires a lot of time, money and test animals. The strategy development identified a base set of physicochemical parameters that are essential to characterise a nanomaterial and substantiate possibilities for read-across. The strategy was proven useful in two hypothetical case studies (nanosilver and nanotitanium dioxide). Fast innovation.

TG TECHNO 11/03/15 A new tool for detecting and destroying norovirus (nanotechnologies)

A research team at the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) recently produced “nanobodies” that could be used to better characterize the structural makeup of the virus. They discovered that these nanobodies could detect the virus in clinical stool samples and disassemble intact norovirus particles. Infection with highly contagious noroviruses, while not usually fatal, can lead to a slew of unpleasant symptoms such as excessive vomiting and diarrhea.

Hansman’s research team recently discovered that a “nanobody” called Nano-85 was able to bind to intact norovirus-like particles (VLPs) in culture. The researchers then tested the nanobody on stool samples from patients infected with the virus. SWISS TPH 23/12/14 Nanotechnology Prevents Host Cell Invasion by Malaria Parasites.

For many infectious diseases no vaccine exists yet to prevent the disease. In addition, resistance against currently used drugs is spreading rapidly. Therefore, innovative strategies with different mechanisms of action are needed to fight these diseases. An example for such infections is malaria caused by Plasmodium falciparum parasites, which are transmitted by Anopheles mosquitoes. Nanomimics are Polymer Vesicles with Host Cell Receptors on the Surface. Nanotechnology, Science and Applications 2014:7 73–83 Prevention of bacterial foodborne disease using nanobiotechnology.

It is highly innovative and dynamic and opens up new possibilities for saving resources and energy. However, as is the case with all new technologies, its potential effects on the environment as well as consumer and worker health raises a number of questions.

“You can use this technique to visualize inflammation around the implant and that can alert the surgeon that the patient is at risk for loosening or we could use the system to deliver a drug that would block the inflammation that is responsible for the loosening process,” said Steven Goldring, M.D., Chief Scientific Officer, St. WILSON INTERNATIONAL CENTER 26/08/07 Green nanotechnology - It's easer than you think.

CORDIS 25/09/07 Nanotechnology could help bring down costs of CO2 capture. Nanotechnology could help bring down costs of CO2 capture [Date: 2007-09-25] A European project called 'Nanomembranes against Global Warming' (NANOGLOWA) is attempting to find a new way of capturing CO2 emissions from power plants with the help of nanotechnology. Nanostructured membranes could reduce carbon capture's energy consumption and costs, making it more attractive than current technology.

Europe produces one gigaton of carbon dioxide annually and wafts it into the atmosphere. Around one-third of this stems from fossil-fuelled power plants. During the absorption process, flue gasses - mainly consisting of nitrogen, water, dust particles and, of course, CO2 - flow through several baths in which the carbon dioxide is bound with amines.
