A new meta-analysis sheds light on the progress of nanotechnology across the globe

João Conde, from the Cancer Nanomedicine lab at CEDOC, just published a meta-analysis on the progress and investment in nanotechnology, alongside colleagues from iMed from Universidade de Lisboa and i3S from Universidade do Porto, MIT (United States of America) and University of Wollongong (Australia). The research was published on ACS Nano with the title “Facts and Figures on Materials Science and Nanotechnology Progress and Investment”.

J.Conde Lab | What is the present (and the future) of Nanomedice in the treatment of Cancer?

Bárbara Mendes, Diana Sousa and João Conniot are all first authors of a brand new review article in Trends in Cancer, supervised by Doctor João Conde at the Cancer Nanomedicine Lab, part of the ToxOmics research unit. They describe the latest developments in the use of nanoparticle-based technology for the treatment of cancer, particularly in the need to overcome the instrinsic variations in the tumor microenvironment.

Indian Long Pepper Plant Packs Punch against Glioblastoma in Animal Model

Cancers such as glioblastoma are difficult to treat because drug molecules that cross from the bloodstream into the brain are needed. The researchers developed a hydrogel-type scaffold that could be filled with piperlongumine and implanted. In two different glioblastoma mouse models, they demonstrated that their piperlongumine-filled scaffold destroyed the glioblastomas almost completely and greatly extended mouse survival compared to untreated mice.
