Millcreek inventor's treatment kills cancer cells in rabbits

Abstract:
Curley said tumors in rabbits that were treated with only radio waves remained alive, while those injected with only nanoparticles also had no change in condition. Treatment using both radio waves and nanoparticles was successful.


Nanoparticles are tiny molecules that can be viewed only using sophisticated electron microscopes. The particles used in the radio-wave research are single-walled carbon nanotubes. Essentially, they are carbon molecules shaped like paper-towel cylinders that can be struck by Kanzius' radio waves and heated to the point that the cancer cells they are inside are destroyed from within.
