Researchers Devise Tiny New Weapons to Fight Cancer

Abstract:
One promising application is in the fight against cancer. Sally DeNardo studies cancer therapies at the University of California at Davis. She's been experimenting with iron-based nanoparticles. "We put radio-labeled antibodies that we know bind to breast cancer on the nanoparticles' surface," she explains, "and then injected them into mice in which we had implanted a very aggressive human breast cancer." The antibody-nanoparticle combinations attached themselves to the breast cancer tumor cells.
