Surprisingly simple method could expand human visual sense Extended senses: An injection with nanoparticles could expand our vision in the future - and make infrared radiation visible to us. Researchers have now successfully tested how this works with mice. The nanoparticles injected into the eye attach themselves to the photoreceptors of the retina and convert incident infrared radiation into green light signals. These are then processed normally by the eye. According to the researchers, this method could also give us humans a real infrared vision. Even if our eye can still...

Our inhaled air contains a multitude of molecules, dust particles and biological components (pollen, bacteria, viruses, plant fibres etc.). In addition to gas molecules such as oxygen, which is very important to us, other unwanted things also enter our respiratory tract. The olfactory mucosa is an important barrier here.What role does the olfactory mucosa play in the possible absorption of nanoparticles via nasal breathing? Where is this olfactory mucosa located at all? Is there a direct connection to the brain? What do research studies say? Answers to these and other questions...

The JRC just released a report clarifying the key concepts and terms used in the European Commission's nanomaterial definition. This will support stakeholders for the correct implementation of legislation making reference to the definition.Nanotechnology may well be one of the most fast-moving sectors of the last few years.The number of products produced by nanotechnology or containing nanomaterials entering the market is increasing.As the technology develops, nanomaterials are delivering benefits to many sectors, including: healthcare (in targeted drug delivery, regenerative...

New DaNa Article Feb 2019
The application of metallic nanoparticles is being widely investigated for various nanomedicines. Especially in novel diagnostic and therapeutic tools they have a high potential. How can ironoxide carbohydrate nanoparticles help against iron deficiency? What kind of Nanomedicin with iron is available and what kind of effects have been observed?The recently published DaNa-article "Ironoxide carbohydrate nanoparticles for iron deficiency" will answer these and other questions and can be found in our Cross-Cutting section. Access the full article via the following link...
