Realistic mini-lungs, grown in lab dishes, feature all cell types that make up the human organ, allowing for “Phase 0” testing of new treatments for respiratory diseases.
Biotechnology covers many different disciplines such as genetics, biochemistry or molecular biology. We report on processes that create more precise tools for disease detection and tailor treatments to individuals to combat debilitating and rare diseases.
This overview introduces smart insulin delivery systems and more innovations that help patients and doctors guide decision-making in diabetes care.
Clinicians are using patient-specific tumor 'organoid' models as a preclinical companion platform to better evaluate immunotherapy treatment for appendiceal cancer.
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.
Progressive Mechanoporation makes it possible to mechanically disrupt the membranes of cells for a short time period and let drugs or genes inside cells.
The combination of a 2Photon 3D-printer with an innovative hydrogel-based bioink allows the direct printing of 3D structures containing living cells at both the meso- and microscale.
Scientists have figured out how to modify CRISPR’s basic architecture to extend its reach beyond the genome and into what’s known as the epigenome.
Artificial intelligence could help to optimise the development of antibody drugs. This leads to active substances with improved properties, also with regard to tolerability in the body.
Researchers have created polymers that replicate the structure of mucins, the molecules that give mucus its unique antimicrobial properties.
Researchers have shown that lab-created heart valves implanted in young lambs for a year were capable of growth within the recipient.
Researchers have developed a structurally representative liver-on-a-chip model which mimics the full progression sequence of NAFLD.
