An international team of researchers has used nanoparticles to deliver a drug – one that previously failed in clinical trials for pain – into specific compartments of nerve cells, dramatically increasing its ability to treat pain in mice and rats. Nikki Withers spoke to Nigel Bunnett to hear more about…

By attaching cyclic peptides to modified liposomes, researchers have created a potential form of drug delivery able to cross the blood-brain barrier.
A report states that three quarters of the roughly 230 nanopharmaceuticals in clinical development are for use as targeted cancer therapeutics.
Researchers have developed a new device, called a ‘spiral hydroporator’, which uses the power of a tiny fluid vortex to rapidly and efficiently deliver nanomaterials into cells.
Researchers have developed a new rubber-like material that they say has the potential to be used as a form of drug delivery due to its nanopores.
Scientists have developed an innovative nanocarrier that can selectively target and deliver a chemotherapy payload to cancer cells without adverse effects on healthy cells.
Scientists have developed a highly sensitive material that can analyse multiple environmental parameters simultaneously, which could be used in drug delivery.
Included in this in-depth focus are features on recombinant albumin as a versatile stabiliser and how nanobots will evolve as an effective drug delivery technique.
Mahfoozur Rahman and Sarwar Beg explain why we need to change tack from traditional formulation-driven development to a target-based approach in order to increase success with anticancer nanomedicine in the clinic.
