Nanobiotix030513Outlook.pdf

Laurent Levy's insight:

Nanobiotix is developing nanotechnology products that could enhance radiotherapy, a cornerstone cancer treatment. The NanoXray technology consists of three products, which are based on physical properties rather than a biological effect, supported by preclinical data. The lead product NBTXR3 for direct tumour injection is currently in Phase I development, with additional data and progression into additional indications expected over the next 12-18 months.

Delivering vaccines using prebiotic spores | News | Laboratorytalk

Delivering vaccines using prebiotic spores | News | Laboratorytalk | Nano in medicine by Laurent Levy | Scoop.it
Scientists at Royal Holloway have developed a pioneering new method of oral vaccination.

Lead scientist Professor Simon Cutting, from the School of Biological Sciences at Royal Holloway, has developed the method through the use of probiotic spores.

He carried out fundamental studies into the biology of the bacterium Bacillus subtilis which attracted the attention of microbiologists due to its ability to form spores that can last millions of years before germinating under the appropriate environmental conditions.

LONDON (Reuters) - Is nanomedicine the next big thing?
Laurent Levy's insight:

he ability to encapsulate potent drugs in tiny particles measuring billionths of a meter in diameter is opening up new options for super-accurate drug delivery, increasing precision hits at the site of disease with, hopefully, fewer side effects.

What dealing with the fiscal cliff has to do with inventing new Alzheimer's drugs.
Laurent Levy's insight:

At first glance, the fiscal cliff and promising new Alzheimer’s research don’t seem to have much in common. Yet, from my perspective leading one of the largest U.S.-based biopharmaceutical companies engaged in that research, they do indeed.
