PolyU develops groundbreaking and highly effective targeted osteoarthritis pain reliever

Tuesday, September 14, 2021 - 1:56pm

The novel targeted osteoarthritis pain theranostics, which offer both diagnostics and therapeutics, are made of gold nanorods coated with a two-dimensional nanomaterial, molybdenum disulfide.

Key Points: 
  • The novel targeted osteoarthritis pain theranostics, which offer both diagnostics and therapeutics, are made of gold nanorods coated with a two-dimensional nanomaterial, molybdenum disulfide.
  • The antibody-fused nanorods enable both active and passive targeting on peripheral osteoarthritis pain generation.
  • "It is the first time the concept of targeted photothermal therapy for osteoarthritis pain via nanotechnology is being introduced," said Professor Yang.
  • In their experiment with the mouse models of osteoarthritis, the nanorods with laser stimulation reduced signs of pain for three to four days.

PolyU's research finds contact tracing is an effective way for controlling the spread of COVID-19 when borders reopen

Wednesday, September 1, 2021 - 2:23pm

The research team has also developed a mobile app with a contact tracing feature, designed for use by inbound travellers, that would help fight the pandemic in this respect.

Key Points: 
  • The research team has also developed a mobile app with a contact tracing feature, designed for use by inbound travellers, that would help fight the pandemic in this respect.
  • Built on an epidemic model with 50% vaccination coverage, the results suggest that scenarios with digital contact tracing can reduce the infectious population by 84.7% compared to those without contact tracing."
  • Consequently, the research team has developed a mobile app with a contact tracing feature, targeting inbound travellers when borders reopen.
  • Professor Chen remarked, "Contact tracing is key to effectively controlling the spread of the virus when borders reopen and the mobile app we designed for use by inbound travellers would serve as a possible solution.
