Doctor Tests Gold in Fighting Cancer

Abstract:
An Arkansas doctor is trying to find a safe and efficient way to target cancerous cells using flecks of gold that are only nanometers wide. It could set a new standard for breast cancer therapy. "This is a very hot area, and nanotechnology in association with lasers is very big," Oraevsky said. "But the major question remains: Can the nanoparticles be delivered specifically to cancer in a human body sufficiently and efficiently?"
