Life Under the Microscope: Quantifying Live Cell Interactions to Improve Nanoscale Drug Delivery.

07:00 EST 27th January 2017 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Life Under the Microscope: Quantifying Live Cell Interactions to Improve Nanoscale Drug Delivery."

The behavior of cells and how they react to stimuli is critically important for drug development, drug delivery, and understanding the molecular basis of many diseases. However, we still lack a comprehensive understanding of these interactions, particularly in relation to drug delivery from nanoparticles. This Sensors Issues article discusses the importance of quantifying these interactions and highlights some key areas where advances in sensor technology have the potential to transform our understanding of drug delivery and cell biology.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Persons who have experienced a prolonged survival after serious disease or who continue to live with a usually life-threatening condition as well as family members, significant others, or individuals surviving traumatic life events.

A figure representing the number of years, based on known statistics, to which any person of a given age may reasonably expect to live.

A sialic acid binding lectin that was originally identified as an adhesion molecule for inflammatory MACROPHAGES and activated MONOCYTES. This protein is the largest known siglec subtype and contains 16 immunoglobulin C2-set domains. It plays a role in cell to cell interactions and interactions with BACTERIA.

The relationship between an invertebrate and another organism (the host), one of which lives at the expense of the other. Traditionally excluded from definition of parasites are pathogenic BACTERIA; FUNGI; VIRUSES; and PLANTS; though they may live parasitically.

Persons that live and work according to a religious vocation, or calling, to a consecrated or ordained life.
