American author and futurist Ray Kurzweil writes in his book The Singularity Is Near: “When nanotechnology is mature, it’s going to solve the problems of biology by overcoming biological pathogens, removing toxins, correcting DNA errors, and reversing other sources of aging”. Needless to say that day is yet to come, but today we can already inject ourselves with millennial blood to stay young indefinitely, according to clinical startup Ambrosia.The company is currently enrolling 600 people to undergo a clinical trial in which elderly volunteers pay a generous amount to receive 1.5 liters of millennial donorplasma in just two days. Their blood will be tested before and after the infusions for more than 100 biomarkers, which according to the company “represent a spectrum of physiologic pathways with evidence-based connections to aging”. The intended results will be shared on their federal website to track human trials. However, bioethicist Leigh Turner at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, says the study raises a growing number of scientifically dubious trials registered in ClinicalTrials.gov by private, for-profit stem cell clinics, and speaks of “undeserved legitimacy” when it comes to such databases.Ironically, the research sounds like it needs some aging. According to Kurzweil, “within ten to twenty years, the biotechnology revolution will provide far more powerful means to stop and in many cases reverse each disease and aging process […] Each year, we’ll have more powerful techniques, and process will accelerate. Then nanotechnology will finish the job".Source: The Next Web.

This bird finds its natural habitat in the canopy of the Amazonian Rainforest and has captivated the curiosity of scientists and bird fanatics for decades. Its dazzling blue body and deep red throat contain no pigment. The color effect is created by the shape of the material. This is known as structural coloration. Now researchers at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) together with Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) have found a way to imitate these biological nanostructures and potentially replace the pigments we use today.Current paints and dyes fade in intensity over time as they absorb light. Contrastingly, structural color amplifies certain wavelengths and, as a consequence, the color remains intact as long as the material does. This process happens in nature, and it is extremely difficult to reproduce, as each color relies on a very specific crystalline pattern. Peacocks and butterflies, for example, use photonic crystals or arrays of nanofibres that are precisely structured to establish the color. What makes the cotinga particularly interesting is the fact that its formal network is porous and much more random, resulting in a surface that looks like a sponge.[caption id="attachment_70549" align="aligncenter" width="650"] A microcapsule shrinks as it dries, arriving at its final color.[/caption]SEAS and KAIST created “microcapsules filled with a disordered solution of nanoparticles suspended in water”. As these capsules dry out, they shrink, reducing the distance between the particles. In turn, these alterations in structure will reflect light differently and will result in a spectrum of color for our eyes to see.Aside from generating color that is resistant to weathering caused by sunlight, this technology could hold great benefits in replacing synthetic dyes that are toxic and harmful to the environment. More applications could be found in electronic display technology. “The dream is that you could have a piece of flexible plastic that you can put graphics on in full color and read in bright sunlight” Says Professor Vinothan N. Manoharan, author of the study.Sources: Asian Scientist, SEAS Harvard Images: The Cornell Lab of Ornithology, SEAS Harvard [post_title] => Color Lessons from the Cotinga Bird [post_excerpt] => Brighter inks, without pigment: nanostructured capsules could bring about paints and electronic displays that never fade.

Statistics show that 40% of U.S. adults between the ages 18 to 29 have one. Soon this trend may turn from a purely aesthetic crave to a healing method. Can you imagine going to hospital to get tattoed?Reaserchers at Rice University and the Baylor College of Medicine tested how antioxidant nanoparticles can be injected underneath the skin and thus provide relief from autoimmune conditions such as multiple sclerosis (M.S.). "The majority of current treatments are general, broad-spectrum immunosuppressants" said one of the researchers, Redwan Huq"They're going to affect all of these cells, but patients are exposed to side effects (ranging) from infections to increased chances of developing cancer. So we get excited when we see something new that could potentially enable selectivity".Through the use of nanotechnology most of patient's immune system would remain intacted. Christine Beeton, who led the study, believes that injecting nanoparticles under the skin instead of directly into blood system, would keep them active longer. "The carbon-based particles form a dark spot that fades over about one week as they are slowly released into the circulation" Beeton explained. The unavoidable dark spot may be turned into a perk: a nicely designed tattoo.Maybe in the future healing process will start at the Nano Supermarket, where you will choose the shape of your healing temporary.Source: Big Think, Science Daily [post_title] => A Temporary Tattoo That Heals [post_excerpt] => Moving tattoos from purely aesthetic crave to a healing method thanks to nanotechnology.

It seems a NANO Supermarket speculative product, actually it is a new type of sensor, designed to be ingested by the patient. This invention will make it possible in the near future to monitor the heart rate and breathing from within the gastrointestinal tract.The device is the work of Giovanni Traverso, team member at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, United States. This type of sensor could provide medical monitoring of patients with certain chronic diseases, improve the training of professional and amateur athletes, and even monitor the vital signs of soldiers on the battlefield. Since pigs' body structure is very similar to the human one, they first tested it on six sedated Yorkshire pigs. Doctors currently measure vital signs such as heart rate and breathing using techniques that include the electrocardiogram (ECG) and pulse oximetry, which require contact with the patient's skin. These vital signs can also be measured with monitoring devices that can be attached to the body, giving freedom of movement to the subjects but often these devices are uncomfortable. pill-ingestible-2-be346d3647636df4f1dd6bff5dfa016d2c0d4686-s1100-c15Inspired by existing ingestible devices to measure body temperature, and other internal images that capture the digestive tract, the researchers designed a sensor that measures the heart rate, breathing and temperature, from within the digestive tract. The difference between the previous methods and this one is simple. This new Nanotechnology allows them to monitor all at once, thanks to a microphone, a battery and a thermometer.“Through characterization of the acoustic wave, recorded from different parts of the GI tract, we found that we could measure both heart rate and respiratory rate with good accuracy,” said gastroenterologist and co-lead author of the study published in PLoS One Giovanni Traverso. “We hope that one day we’re able to detect certain molecules or a pathogen and then deliver an antibiotic, for example. This development provides the foundation for that kind of system down the line”.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8zq8cfLv84Q[/youtube]Source: MIT.

But the yogurt developed by MIT researcher Sangeeta Bhatia has something more. For years she has been studying and researching to simplify the diagnosis of cancer. The result is an extraordinary yogurt that could soon implement accurate, young disease diagnosis.Along with her group of researchers, Bhatia has designed synthetic nanoparticles coated with peptides that figure in substrate for cancer distinct enzymes. Consequently the outputs are expelled in urine and therefore can be easily detected.The researches have maturated nanoparticles able to find their way to tumors. These are later disassembled into small parts by enzymes originated by cancer. These smaller particles are then small enough to be stored and assimilated by the kidney, after which they are expelled in urine. This cheap method, as Bhatia says, will “transform diagnostics”.This product is a real turning point, it could mean easy accessibility to the diagnosis of deadly diseases. Since the test requires no technical machinery, it could be particularly useful for Third World countries, where Bhatia says “few people are currently screened for common cancers and it could also replace or augment colonoscopies” and where hospital conditions are sometimes unfavorable. But the test could be very useful all over the globe, since only 40% of the patients are diagnosed early for cancer partially because so few people get screened on time. If recognized at an early state, 90% of patients with colorectal cancer can survive for at least five years. This is why this discovery is very useful and crucial for providing accessible, cheap and almost effortless cancer tests.Source: Technology Review.

When the microfish are placed in peroxide, the tails move, propelling the fish along. Other particles, such as chemicals that can detect and absorb toxins like bee venom, can be added to the materials used to print the fish. As the fish work, they glow red, and the swimming motion helps make sure they don't miss a drop of the contaminaResearchers have high hopes for the future of their creatures: “This method has made it easier for us to test different designs for these microrobots and to test different nanoparticles to insert new functional elements into these tiny structures. It’s my personal hope to further this research to eventually develop surgical microrobots that operate safer and with more precision” one of the microfish inventors Jinxing Li said in a press release.Other possible applications include delivering drugs to targeted areas of the body, or removing toxins. And those future drug deliveries or detoxifying treatments can have different shapes other than fish. Researchers can also make printed manta rays or sharks, they could eventually even print bird shaped delivery microbots.Source: Advanced Materials, Popular Science [post_title] => 3D Printed Fish Remove Toxins and Deliver Drugs [post_excerpt] => Researchers from UC San Diego announced that they have developed 3D print tiny microrobots in the shape of fish able to detect and remove toxin from liquid.
