Nanoparticles target tumours

Abstract:
Scientists in the US have shown that gold nanoparticles can help X-rays kill cancerous cells more effectively in mice. The team hopes to refine the technique so that it will eventually work on humans.

"A major X-ray manufacturer is considering a modification that would optimise our gold nanoparticle radiotherapy for patients."
