Novosibirsk researchers develop mathematical breathing model to boost spray drug efficacy

Novosibirsk researchers develop mathematical breathing model to boost spray drug efficacyNovosibirsk scientists are developing a mathematical model of human breathing to improve the efficacy of spray drugs for a number of severe diseases.

Novosibirsk scientists are developing a mathematical model of our upper airways to improve the efficacy of spray drugs for a number of severe diseases, the website of the Siberian branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences announced. At the moment, the scientists of the Khristianovich Institute of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics are researching into the ways medicinal nanoparticles move in the human nose?s air flows. ?These substances [nanoparticles] possess a unique penetrating capability. For example, when supplied straight into a certain area of the nose?s olfactory region, they could instantly help relieve an epilepsy episode, as the upper airways lead directly from the nose to the brain. However, we need to continue to work on the project a lot to find out how to administer the particles, at what angle, what the size of such particles should be, how a patient should breathe during this therapy, etc[/nanoparticles]...
