Smart Anticancer "Nanofiber Mesh"
2-July-2013

A MANA research team has developed a new nanofiber mesh which is capable of simultaneously realizing thermotherapy (hyperthermia) and chemotherapy (treatment with anticancer drugs) of tumors. They succeeded in efficiently inducing natural death (apoptosis) of epithelial cancer cells.

Can silver promote the colonization of bacteria on medical devices?
27-June-2013

Biomaterials are increasingly replacing human organs and tissues and silver is added to reduce the adhesion of bacteria to biomaterials and prevent infections. However, a recent study by researchers in Portugal suggests that – in one material – increasing levels of silver may indirectly promote bacterial adhesion.

Observation of skyrmions (magnetic vortex structures) in a ferromagnet with centrosymmetry - New knowledge for magnetic information technology
24-May-2013

Researchers using Lorentz electron microscopy have shown that magnetic skyrmions are spontaneously formed as nanomagnetic clusters in a ferromagnetic manganese oxide with centrosymmetry.
