Pencil-on-Paper Wearable Sensor

Researchers at Penn State have developed a low-cost, wearable sensor using pencil-on-paper technology. This approach involves depositing graphite (pencil ‘lead’) on paper that has been treated with sodium chloride, to create a conductive, low-cost sensor. Previously, these researchers had developed such sensors to detect moisture and even used...

Investigating Bacterial Motion for New Treatment Strategies

Researchers at Florida State University have developed a 3D model that examines how the bacterium Helicobacter pylori moves through viscous fluids. H. pylori can cause gastrointestinal ulcers and even cancer, moving through the intestinal mucus layer to reach the wall of the gut. Using antibiotics can cause side-effects and can contribute to...

Smart Sutures Sense Inflammation, Deliver Drugs, Cells

Researchers at MIT have developed smart sutures with a hydrogel coating that contains sensing and drug delivery components, and could even be used to implant therapeutic cells. The sutures are made using pig tissues that have been decellularized with detergents to reduce the possibility that they could provoke an immune reaction. The surrounding...

siRNA as a COVID-19 Treatment

Researchers at UMass Chan Medical School have developed a small interfering RNA (siRNA) technology that is stable enough for inhalation into the lungs, where it can potentially treat diseases as diverse as asthma, pulmonary fibrosis, and viral infections such as COVID-19. siRNA is not typically stable enough to survive for long in the lungs, but the...

Cancer Organoids Offer Insights into Treatment Outcomes

Researchers at the Hubrecht Institute in the Netherlands have developed a biobank of cancer organoids using tissue samples obtained from head and neck cancer patients. So far, the team used the biobank to validate tumor biomarkers. Excitingly, they also correlated patient treatment responses with organoid treatment responses, suggesting that...
