Neurons Can Carry Multiple Signals At A Time

Back in the early days of telecommunications, engineers devised a clever way to send multiple telephone calls through a single wire at the same time. Called time-division multiplexing, this technique rapidly switches between sending pieces of each message. New research from Duke University shows that  in the brain may be capable of a similar strategy

SPECT/CT Imaging of Chemotherapy-induced Tumor Apoptosis

Non-invasive imaging of apoptosis in tumors induced by chemotherapy is of great value in the evaluation of therapeutic efficacy. In this study, we report the synthesis, characterization, and utilization of radionuclide technetium-99m (99mTc)-labeled dendrimer-entrapped gold nanoparticles (Au DENPs) for targeted SPECT/CT imaging of chemotherapy-induced tumor apoptosis
