New anti-thrombosis drug based on magnetite nanoparticles and developed at ITMO University has been successfully tested on animals. Preclinical studies conducted as part of the project "PHARMA 2020" showed the drug’s high efficacy and no side effects, with the clot dissolution rate being twenty times shorter than that of traditional medications. The range of permissible concentrations is very high, and the minimum dose of the active substance required to achieve the desired effect was a hundred times smaller than usual. The results are published in Applied Materials and Interfaces.
Researchers from ITMO University created a new kind of magnetic nanospheres for drug delivery. Due to the unique combination of synthesis methods, the size of these magnetite-based nanospheres can be easily regulated. At the same time, the nanospheres are not damaging to cells. The scientists proved the new material’s effectiveness in a range of experiments on dissolving model plasma clots. The results were published in Applied Materials & Interfaces.
ITMO University’s Master's students Vladislav Slabov and Kirill Keller talk about the role of inkjet printing methods in their new research. The scientists have created a way to not only print chromatic holograms on any surface but also to create high-quality organic piezoelectric structures. The results of their research were published in Advanced Functional Materials and Applied Materials & Interfaces.
