Engineers have designed a strong, biocompatible glue that can seal injured tissues and stop bleeding.
(Bio)Tech & IT
Advances in healthcare are strongly driven by information technology and (bio)engineering. We reports on the development of next-gen diagnostic and biotech tools such as CRIPSR and other smart technologies that transform the delivery of care. We also cover the progress of digitalization and the creating of cutting-edge IT solutions – from using big data to predict therapy responses to using blockchain to make sharing of medical data secure.
Researchers have developed a new method to prevent bacterial infections, by covering a graphene-based material with bactericidal molecules.
Tests show that the device can help patients safely and effectively manage their blood glucose levels and reduce the risk of low blood sugar levels.
This overview introduces smart insulin delivery systems and more innovations that help patients and doctors guide decision-making in diabetes care.
Scientists have developed a simple method of extracting tiny biological particles from a person's blood and use them as biomarkers to assess the health of their blood vessels.
A wearable brain-machine interface system could improve the quality of life for people with motor dysfunction or paralysis, even those struggling with locked-in syndrome.
Clinicians are using patient-specific tumor 'organoid' models as a preclinical companion platform to better evaluate immunotherapy treatment for appendiceal cancer.
With a ‘liquid assembly line,’ researchers produce mRNA-delivering-nanoparticles a hundred times faster than standard microfluidic technologies.
Researchers have constructed a nano-scale borate bioactive glass that can effectively reduces the biological toxicity of borate bioglass and improves the biocompatibility of the glass.
The MasSpec Pen has shown to accurately identify tissues and surgical margins directly in patients and differentiate healthy and cancerous tissue from banked pancreas samples.
Chatbots hold promise for dementia patient or caregiver support, but are still in their infancy, new research finds. None of the interactive digital apps tested performed well on all testing criteria.
Researchers have developed a new material that can facilitate a near-perfect merger between machines and the human body for diagnostics and treatment.
