ARLINGTON, Va. - July 9, 2014 - PRLog -- Conventional imaging methods are known to come up short when dealing with the gut, the site of IBS, Celica’s and Crohn's disease, among other intestinal issues. Researchers at the University of Buffalo believe with the many animal studies administered they may have solved the problem.

Researchers used what they refer to as “nanojuice” a combination of specially designed nanoparticles containing dyes known as naphthalocyanines for patients (mice) to drink. Once the juice hits the small intestines, the doctor then hits it with a laser beam revealing real-time functions of the organ, according to a news release of the University of Buffalo.

"Conventional imaging methods show the organ and blockages, but this method allows you to see how the small intestine operates in real time," said University of Buffalo biomedical engineering professor Jonathan Lovell, and co-author of theNature Nanotechnology article describing the findings. "Better imaging will improve our understanding of these diseases and allow doctors to more effectively care for people suffering from them," he explained in the news release.

While the team has only administered the nanojuice in mice, it plans on making improvements to the imaging methods and moving onto human trials. In the future researchers hope to use the method to map other areas of the 20-plus feet of gastrointestinal tract located between the stomach and large intestine.

Researchers have made the dyes user friendly and are safe for human consumption; that are normally absorbed into the blood stream. The new process would be a noninvasive way of locating and tracking real-time defects.
