A Fargo researcher is using nanotechnology to develop a cheaper, less toxic way to detect and treat cancer, and the concept could someday replace treatments like chemotherapy.
Cancer cells produce a higher level of certain enzymes than normal cells.
Sanku Mallik at North Dakota State University thinks those enzymes are a key to detecting and killing cancer cells.
Mallik has created microscopic nanoparticles that react to two of those enzymes.
While many researchers are experimenting with gold nanoparticles to deliver drugs to cancer tumors, Mallik is using nontoxic materials.
