NCL to go into labs with ‘Golden Triangle’ for cancer trials

Eight months after raising hopes with their cutting edge ‘Golden Triangle’ technology for fighting cancer sans chemotherapy, nanoscientists at the National Chemical Laboratory (NCL) are gearing up for the technology’s first in-vitro tests.

The trials are being conducted to establish the toxicity of the gold nano-particles. "While gold is inherently non-toxic, we have to see exactly where the nano-sized triangles go when introduced into the cancerous area. We have kept a two-year window to see if we can get into clinical trials on humans."
