Cancer can be “burned up” with a new technique that uses magnetic pulses to heat tumor cells until they die.  Scientists have found they can surround cancer cells with tiny particles of iron oxide that vibrate when in a magnetic field, causing the cells to heat up.

Nano-sized “Cargo Ships” Developed To Carry Anti-Cancer Drugs And Markers Through The Body

Nano-sized “Cargo Ships” Developed To Carry Anti-Cancer Drugs And Markers Through The Body 

 The nanometer-sized cargo ships look individually like a chocolate-covered nut cluster, in which a biocompatible lipid forms the chocolate shell and magnetic nanoparticles, quantum dots and the drug doxorubicin are the nuts.

Scientists have developed nanometer-sized ‘cargo ships’ that can sail throughout the body via the bloodstream without immediate detection from the body’s immune radar system and ferry their cargo of anti-cancer drugs and markers into tumors that might otherwise go untreated or undetected.
