New materials to improve delivery of therapeutic messenger RNA

Messenger RNA, a huge nucleic corrosive that encodes genetic data, can guide cells to create particular proteins. Unlike DNA, mRNA isn't for all time...
How polymers relax after stressful processing?

How polymers relax after stressful processing?

The polymers that make up engineered materials require time to relax after processing. A new examination by Illinois scientists has discovered that entangled, long-chain...
Researchers hope that their work will lead to a new approach to designing and evaluating polymer stents and other types of degradable medical devices

Study unveiled why polymer stents failed

Many patients with heart disease who went for surgery have a metal stent implanted to keep their coronary artery open. The metal stent prevents...
