In tests, they were able to to insert agents into cells in as little as a few milliseconds, or thousandths of a second.At the moment the process is suitable for laboratory research the best, said Lee, because it only works on a cell or multiple cells at one time. But he and his team on ways inject many cells simultaneously work. The best, said mechanical cell – loading system, which would inject up to 100,000 cells at once..
NEP circumvents the problem by suspending a cell within an electronic device having a reservoir of the therapeutic agent in the vicinity. Electrical pulses push the agent from the reservoir and through a nanometer scale channel in the device, through the cell wall and into the cell. Researchers control the dose by adjusting the number of pulses and the width of the channel.
He sees potential applications for the diagnosis and treatment of leukemia, lung cancer, and other tumors. He is exploring with researchers at the Ohio State Comprehensive Cancer Center of those opportunities.In a study, scientists of various T-scores and fracture incidence in one year of the bone density tests. According to the World Health Organization, is a T-score of-2.5 or lower osteoporosis. The classification system developed the researchers identified correctly 74 % by a from a future fracture. ‘.
