Nanotechnology brings scientists one step closer to a universal treatment for cancerPosted on March 21st, 2011
"Using small doses of novel designs of nanoparticles-specifically prepared for the experiment- we achieved not only to deliberately activate or inhibit genes that are involved in the angiogenesis process but also to control the degree of damage and repair of the endothelial cells using laser illumination. Our longer aim is to create a toolbox of smart nanomaterials that will assist us to efficiently control angiogenesis-activating the process when is needed (i.e. wound healing) or inhibiting it in other cases (i.e. disrupting the ‘food' supply of tumors)." Dr. Antonios Kanaras said.
