Nano World: Nano-based antiradiation drug
Charles Q. Choi: Balls of carbon atoms called buckyballs - only a nanometer or billionth of a meter in diameter - could serve as future antiradiation drugs to help protect against the side effects of cancer therapies or against dirty bombs, experts told UPI`s Nano World.
The researchers found that buckyballs given before or immediately after exposure to X-rays reduced organ damage by one-half to two-thirds, which is as good as the level of protection amifostine provides.
