Combining antibiotics with silver nanoparticles may help address drug resistance

Scientists at Delhi-based Jamia Millia Islamia University have now combined silver nanoparticles with an antibiotic and found that this formulation can kill antibiotic-resistant bacteria effectively even at low dosage...................

Selenium nanoparticles may act like antibacterial agents

The antibacterial effect of selenium may be due to the fact that at a particular concentration nano-selenium interacts with the bacterial cell surface and penetrates into the cell, thus causing damage.............

Silk protein & silver nanoparticles may make implants safe, find IIT-D...

A group of scientists at the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IITD) have prepared a scaffold of silk fibroin films with silver nanoparticles that can tackle the issue of microbial infection in the medical implants..............

New method developed for faster typhoid diagnosis

The new method uses magnetic nanoparticles coupled with antibodies. In tests, it was found that over 65 percent bacteria cells got bound to nanoparticles within 30 minutes...............

Magnetic nanoparticles can deliver anticancer drugs with precision

A team of researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati, led by Prof S. Gumma and Prof M. K. Purkait has used magnetite and incorporated it into metal-organic frameworks for delivering anticancer drugs..............

Eggshell-derived nanoparticles can be used for drug delivery

A team of scientists at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras have developed a method to use eggshells for synthesizing nanoparticles which could later be used for creating a fresh approach to drug delivery mechanism
