New way to fight against antibiotic resistance

A new nanomesh has been created by researches at the Flinders University in Australia and researchers in Japan. This new fabrication is said to be able to administer antibiotics whilst lowering the risk of our immune systems becoming resistant to the antibiotic being used.  “In order to deliver the antibiotics to a specific area, the antibiotics were embedded into the mesh produced using a technique called electrospinning, which has gained considerable interest in the biomedical community as it offers promise in many applications including wound management, drug delivery and antibiotic coatings,” Koeper said. “A high voltage is then applied between the needle connected to the syringe, and the collector plate which causes the polymer solution to form a cone as it leaves th

Newly developed brain tumour blood test.

Combining infrared and AI, a new blood test which can accurately detect cancer at 87% has been developed by a team of researchers at the University of Strathclyde. Brain tumours have always been hard to detect and diagnose due to their symptoms, such as headaches and memory loss, being associated with a number of different ailments. This new blood test is said to help doctors rapidly diagnose patients and can characterise the biochemical profile.  “This is the first publication of data from our clinical feasibility study and it is the first demonstration that our blood test works in the clinic,” said research lead Dr Matthew Baker, chief scientific officer at ClinSpec Diagnostics and reader in Strathclyde’s Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry. “Earlier detection
