Treating autoimmune disorders with an inhaler, rather than an IV

December 7, 2020

Research in mice shows efficacy for multiple sclerosis. Nanoparticles continue to find wider use in medical treatments in everything from drug delivery to diagnosing disease. In nearly every case, these ultrafine particles are delivered to patients via injection or through an IV. Biomedical engineers at the University of Michigan are exploring how nanoparticles that are […]
