...Nucleic acid delivery

20.01.2010
Die Gentherapie umfasst eine Vielfalt biomedizinischer Anwendungen und liefert zahlreiche Methoden, um schwere Krankheiten wie z.B. Krebs zu behandeln. Sie beinhaltet das Einbringen von Genen mithilfe geeigneter Trägerstoffe in das Gewebe oder in die Zellen. Dabei werden defekte Genabschnitte durch einen gezielten Austausch der fehlerhaften DNA-Sequenz repariert. Durch die eingebrachten Gene wird eine therapeutische oder präventive Wirkung erzielt. Anders als bei konventionellen medikamentösen Therapien wird hier kein direkt wirkendes Arzneimittel verabreicht. Die Körperzellen sollen, die zur Heilung benötigten Proteine selbst produzieren bzw. die Produktion von unerwünschten Proteinen verhindern.

Alle bisher bekannten Methoden für eine erfolgreiche Gentherapie sind bis heute mehr oder weniger problematisch. Das entscheidende Problem ist hierbei die Entwicklung von Übertragungssystemen, so genannten Genfähren oder Vektoren. Die erfolgreiche und gefahrlose Einschleusung des genetischen Materials in die gentherapeutisch zu behandelnden Zellen stellt ganz besondere Anforderungen an die pharmazeutische Technik. Mit Hilfe von bioabbaubaren Polymeren versucht man neue viel versprechende Trägermaterialien für den Einsatz in der Gentherapie zu finden.

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Studying fundamental particles in materials

Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales

Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
