Researchers Watch in Real Time as Fat-Encased Drug Nanoparticles Invade Skin Cells

Some anti-cancer drugs are encapsulated to allow gradual release, spreading their effect over a longer time. For example, one formulation of the chemotherapy doxorubicin ( the FDA-approved drug Doxil®) encloses molecules of the drug in fatty nano-spheres called liposomes, which allows the drug to circulate longer in the blood.

A Fashionable Chemical and Biological Threat Detector-on-a-Ring

17-193PressPac.jpg

Wearable sensors are revolutionizing the tech-world, capable of tracking processes in the body, such as heart rates. They’re even becoming fashionable, with many of them sporting sleek, stylish designs. But wearable sensors also can have applications in detecting threats that are external to the body. Researchers now report in ACS Sensors a first-of-its kind device that can do just that. And to stay fashionable, they’ve designed it as a ring.
