Scissors get stuck -- another way bacteria use CRISPR/Cas9

Scissors get stuck -- another way bacteria use CRISPR/Cas9

In biotech these days, CRISPR/Cas9 is a hot topic, because of its utility as a precise gene editing tool. Before humans repurposed it, CRISPR/Cas9 was a sort of internal immune system bacteria use to defend themselves against phages, or viruses that infect bacteria, by slicing up the phages' DNA.

Microgel supports 3D printing of organs from stem cells

Microgel supports 3D printing of organs from stem cells

Scientists have developed a platform that prints bioink into 3D tissues using a supporting slurry of alginate microgel beads. The technique overcomes limitations of conventional bioprinted scaffolds and holds promise for tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, drug screening and developmental biology.

Six "firsts" in electroceutical approvals of 2019

Six "firsts" in electroceutical approvals of 2019

IDTechEx has been following the field of bioelectronic medicine over the past year and have identified several fast-growing areas, including peripheral nerve stimulation, which is forecast to grow at 35% CARG for 2019 - 2029. Several firsts in regulatory approvals and clearances of bioelectronic medicine devices over the first half of 2019 mark important initial steps in growing the market and increasing the number of patients being treated by these technologies. Please refer to the IDTechEx market research report "Bioelectronic Medicine 2019-2029" for more information.

Artificial DNA can control release of active ingredients from drugs

Artificial DNA can control release of active ingredients from drugs

A drug with three active ingredients that are released in sequence at specific times: what was once a pharmacologist's dream is now much closer to reality. With a combination of hydrogels and artificial DNA, nanoparticles can be released in sequence under conditions similar to those in the human body.\r\n\r\n

Bringing neuromodulation therapies to drug-resistant epilepsy patients

Bringing neuromodulation therapies to drug-resistant epilepsy patients

Despite medical and surgical advances to treat epilepsy, between 15 and 40 percent of patients continue to suffer from seizures. A significant service gap exists to bring new therapies -- called neuromodulation -- that could help many of these patients.
