Testing nanomedicine with blood cells on a microchip

Designing nanomedicine to combat diseases is a hot area of scientific research, primarily for treating cancer, but very little is known in the context of atherosclerotic disease. Scientists have engineered a microchip coated with blood vessel cells to learn more about the conditions under which nanoparticles accumulate in the plaque-filled arteries of patients with atherosclerosis, the underlying cause of myocardial infarction and stroke.

Dokumentation: Sicherer Umgang mit Nanomaterialien

Aktuelle Forschungsergebnisse machen deutlich: Nanomaterialien sind nicht allein aufgrund ihrer Kleinheit generell gefährlicher als gröber strukturierte Materialien. Dies zeigten Ergebnisse der Risikoforschung des Bundesministeriums für Bildung und Forschung, die im Technologiegespräch 'Sicherer Umgang mit Nanomaterialien' in Berlin vorgestellt wurden.
