The methodology described here allows the liposome encapsulation of phages of different morphologies to be stored for at least 3 months at 4°C and could be added to the drinking water and feed of animals.
Synthesis, culture medium stability, and in vitro and in vivo zebrafish embryo toxicity of metal-organic framework nanoparticles.
NanoMOFs were ranked according to their respective in vivo toxicity (in terms of the amount and severity of phenotypic changes observed in the treated zebrafish embryos), which varied widely, and show different levels of toxicity of these materials.

A nanoporous molecular magnet with reversible solvent-induced mechanical and magnetic properties
MOROF-1 shows a reversible and highly selective solvent-induced 'shrinking–breathing' process involving large volume changes that strongly influence the magnetic properties of the material, which could be the first stage of a new route towards magnetic solvent sensors.
Microencapsulation with alginate/CaCO3: A strategy for improved phage therapy
It is evidenced that a cocktail of the three alginate/CaCO3-encapsulated bacteriophages had a greater and more durable efficacy than a cocktails of the corresponding non-encapped phages in as therapy in broilers against Salmonella, one of the most common foodborne pathogen.
Use of Autoantigen-Loaded Phosphatidylserine-Liposomes to Arrest Autoimmunity in Type 1 Diabetes
This innovative immunotherapy arrests the autoimmune aggression, reduces the severity of insulitis and prevents type 1 diabetes by apoptotic mimicry is concluded to constitute a promising strategy for autoimmune diseases.

Results demonstrate that an increase in circulating human rApoJ induces a reduction of insoluble Aβ and CAA load in the brain of APP23 mice, and suggests that peripheral interventions, based on treatments with multifunctional physiological chaperones, offer therapeutic opportunities to regulate the cerebral Aβ load.

A parallel assembly process that allows one to simultaneously position, shape, and link SWNTs with sub-100-nm resolution is demonstrated and a mathematical relationship describing the geometrically weighted interactions betweenSWNTs and the two different SAMs required to overcome solvent–SWNT interactions and effect assembly is provided.
