Nanotechnology 101: how nanotechnology may revolutionize anticancer therapy by cooking cancer cells

Abstract:
In a previous Examiner related article, the impact of nanotechnology in medicine, health and everyday life was reviewed in detail. In this article, another breakthrough in the field of nanotechnology demonstrates once again how carbon nanotubes, small particles composed of carbon with a length of one millionth of the size of a hair follicle, may have practical applications in the medical field, specifically in the field of oncology. Nanotechnology is an infant and evolving field and ever since their discovery, carbon nanotubes have received a lot of attention due to the fact that they exhibit amazing physico-chemical properties which include thermal conductance, ability to adsorb infrared radiation, and small size which allows for rapid adsorption and uptake in a variety of tissues making them ideal candidate molecules for use in thermal mediated ablation of large tumors.
