Dy2O3 nanoparticle nano-magnets A previous study has explored the use of dextran coated Dy2O3 nanoparticles as an MRI contrast agent (Norek 2008). In another study, glucuronic acid was used to coat composite nanoparticles of Gd2O3 and Dy2O3 that served as a dual T1 and T2 relaxation agents (Tegafaw 2015). Dy(III) loaded tobacco mosaic virus nanomagnets T2… Continue reading Dysprosium nano-magnets
Argyrodite, as defined by Wikipedia, is a silver germanium sulfide. The quest for all solid state batteries has led to an argyrodite definition of Li6PS5X (X = Cl, Br, I). One reason Hanghofer and coauthors (2019) cite for this redefinition is the expense of Ge. These authors compared chloride, bromide, and iodide salts of this… Continue reading Argyrodite

Targeting KRAS in pancreatic cancer The Kirsten rat adenosarcoma (KRAS) gene codes for a member of the RAS small GTP binding protein family. RAS small G proteins are activated when they interact with growth factor bound receptors. They are inactivated when they interact with G=protein associated proteins (GAP). GAPs activate hydrolysis of GTP to GDP. … Continue reading novel pancreatic cancer treatment
A multi-center FGF21 clinical trial is conducted in the area for the use of a modified fibroblast growth factor 21 for the treatment of NASH with fibrosis. What is NASH? What is fibroblast growth factor 21? Fibroblast Growth Factor 21 (FGF21) is secreted by hepatocytes. FGF21 stimulates glucose uptake in differentiated adipocytes. The FGF21 Wikipedia… Continue reading FGF21 and NASH
