From Nuclear and Strategic Disarmament to Joint Worldwide Research and Development for Humanity Survival

Claudio Nicolini
In the last few years the problems of humanity are growing in all sectors of the economy, from energy to environment and disasters induced by nuclear reactors, from cancer to hardware and space such as asteroids. More than 150,000 asteroids are now registered in the Smithsonian’s Minor Planet Center and NASA estimates that more than 1,000 are characterized as Near-Earth Objects that can be stopped only by nuclear weapons which are on the hands essentially of United States of America and Russian Federation.

High Performance Lightweight Magnesium Nanocomposites for Engineering and Biomedical Applications

Wai Leong Eugene Wong and Manoj Gupta
Magnesium is the lightest structural metal that can be used for engineering applications and its non-toxic nature makes it attractive for use as a biomedical implant. The judicious addition of nanoparticles to magnesium assists in enhancing multiple engineering properties that are critical for its widespread use and are superior to that exhibited by conventional micron-size particles containing composites.

Quasi-QSPR to Predict Proteins Behavior Under Various Concentrations of Drug Using Nanoconductometric Assay

Nicola Bragazzi, Andrey Toropov, Alla Toropova, Eugenia Pechkova and Claudio Nicolini
Conductometric monitoring of drug-gene and drug-protein interactions is of fundamental importance in functional proteomics. Here, we model our previously obtained findings and characterizations of an important antiblastic used in neuro-oncology (Temozolomide), interacting with selected proteins that represent predictive biomarkers of the rate survival of the patients, of the outcome of chemotherapy and resistance to drug itself (namely, BRIP1 and MLH1) acquired with Nucleic Acid Programmable Protein Arrays (NAPPA)-based nanoconductometric sensor.
