Curley said the treatment is the most promising he has seen because it has the potential to kill cancer — without invasive treatment or surgery — that doctors currently have no way of detecting. The next step for scientists is to perfect a method of binding nanoparticles with antibodies that, when introduced into the bloodstream, will attach only to cancer cells while avoiding normal cells. He said the treatment could work on any kind of cancer, and he estimates clinical trials are three to fours years away.
"Possible?" Curley said, "Yes. Not simple."
Last year, Kanzius began raising money for his research with the help of his neighbors. High school students held fundraisers, foundations offered grants and children sold lemonade. Donations reached more than $1 million. In May, Erie officials gave Kanzius a key to the city and declared an official "John Kanzius Day." A former Erie mayor announced a goal to raise $3 million to fund research.
