A human immunoreceptor recognises carbon nanotubes

https://www.nature.com/articles/s41565-023-01363-w CNTs have been used in a wide variety of fields as a next-generation nanomaterial with great potential. Some Multi-Walled CNTs (MWCNTs) have been reported to exhibit inflammatory toxicity similar to asbestos in animal studies. However, it was not known how MWCNTs are recognized in vivo and induce inflammation, nor whether similar inflammatory toxicity is […]

Advances in diabetes-1 treatment by cell technology

https://bio.nikkeibp.co.jp/atcl/report/16/082400016/100500253/ The group around Tetsuya Ikemoto, a GI surgeon at the University Hospital of Fukushima,┬áprepares for an investigator-initiated clinical trial on insulin-producing cells (IPC) derived from autologous fat cells of human patients. He has finished safety evaluation and proof-of-concept experiments using diabetic mice and pigs. The insulin-producing cells under study are adipose-derived stem cells taken […]
