Nano packages for anti-cancer drug delivery

Cancer stem cells are resistant to chemotherapy and consequently tend to remain in the body even after a course of treatment has finished, where they can often trigger cancer recurrence or metastasis. A new study by researchers ...

Medical nanoparticles: local treatment of lung cancer

Nanoparticles can function as carriers for medicines to combat lung cancer: Working in a joint project at the NIM (Nanosystems Initiative Munich) Excellence Cluster, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum München (HMGU) and ...

Potential new breathalyzer for lung cancer screening

Researchers from Chongqing University in China have developed a high sensitive fluorescence-based sensor device that can rapidly identify cancer related volatile organic compounds—biomarkers found exclusively in the exhaled ...

Test your home for radon: EPA

(HealthDay)—Americans should test their homes for a naturally occurring radioactive gas called radon, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says.

Damaged DNA amplified

For the first time, researchers have succeeded in amplifying genes altered by activities such as smoking—with changes that can lead to lung cancer. As the amplified genes retain the altered information, this marks an important ...

New 'lab-on-a-chip' could revolutionize early diagnosis of cancer

Scientists have been laboring to detect cancer and a host of other diseases in people using promising new biomarkers called "exosomes." Indeed, Popular Science magazine named exosome-based cancer diagnostics one of the 20 ...

'Nanodaisies' deliver drug cocktail to cancer cells

(Phys.org) —Biomedical engineering researchers have developed daisy-shaped, nanoscale structures that are made predominantly of anti-cancer drugs and are capable of introducing a "cocktail" of multiple drugs into cancer ...
