Topic: Nanoparticle research and testing
Has anyone in the group been following the news regarding nanoparticle technology to treat cancer? A lot has been happening very quickly in this field. Nanospectra Technology has already moved to human trials for head and neck cancer. The link is: http://www.nanospectra.com
Dr. Steven Curley at MD Anderson has completed small animal trials, with great success. He has been curing rabbits and mice of liver cancer! He begins large animal trials in September. He hopes to begin human trials very soon after concluding the large animal trials. The link is:
There is plenty of other research going on. I find this all very exciting, since progress is being made at a rapid pace (well, comparatively rapid for the field of medicine).
Anyone else have thoughts or news on this topic? Please share!
