Tiny Swimming Robots Treat Deadly Pneumonia in Mice

Tiny Swimming Robots Treat Deadly Pneumonia in Mice

Nanoengineers have developed microscopic robots, called microrobots, that can swim around in the lungs, deliver medication and be used to clear up life-threatening cases of bacterial pneumonia. In mice, the microrobots safely eliminated pneumonia-causing bacteria in the lungs and resulted in 100% survival. By contrast, untreated mice all died within three days after infection.

In-Home Wireless Device Tracks Disease Progression in Parkinson's

In-Home Wireless Device Tracks Disease Progression in Parkinson's

Parkinson's disease is the fastest-growing neurological disease, now affecting more than 10 million people worldwide, yet clinicians still face huge challenges in tracking its severity and progression. More than 40 percent of individuals with Parkinson's are never treated by a neurologist or Parkinson's specialist, often because they live too far from an urban center or have difficulty traveling. In an effort to address these problems, researchers demonstrated an in-home device that can monitor a patient's movement and gait speed, which can be used to evaluate Parkinson's severity, the progression of the disease, and the patient's response to medication.
