New nanoparticle ‘reshapes’ belly fat to stop more forming

The nanoparticle converts unhealthy fat into healthier fat cells. A new nanoparticle remodels fat into ‘dwarf cells’ and stops more fat from developing. The nanoscale fat buster also treated obesity in mice and inhibited ‘fat-forming’ genes. Resculpting fat Often seen as a cumbersome ballast that spoils the line of our beachwear, fat cells have had …

Naturally magnetic bacteria is a promising cancer therapy

The bacteria, which contain magnetic structures, was discovered in 1975. Interest has grown in harnessing naturally occurring cancer treatments as microbots possessing enhanced targeting abilities. In a related study published in Science Robotics, a team of scientists from ETH Zurich uses the native magnetic properties of Magnetospirillum bacteria to decimate tumors. Harnessing nature Magnetospirillum magneticum is a highly evolved …
