Scientists Verify Nanodiamond Discovery

by Marcia Goodrich-Michigan Technological University News Office
Diamonds, usually forged in overwhelming heat and pressure miles deep in the Earth’s mantle, have now been made at atmospheric pressure and 100 degrees Celcius—the boiling point of water.

Nanodiamonds to Neutralize Chemoresistance in Leukaemia

by National University of Singapore
Chemoresistance or the specific resistance acquired by cells to the action of certain chemicals commonly hinders the treatment of cancer. Existing ways to address this issue revolve around using competitive inhibitors, but have limited success. Now, a research team led by Assistant Professor Edward Chow of the Cancer Science Institute of Singapore (CSI) at NUS has found that binding multiple molecules of a common leukaemia drug with nanodiamonds can neutralise chemoresistance.
