Rep. Meehan Unveils First-of-its-Kind, Cancer Killing Nano-Technology

Abstract:
Congressman Martin Meehan (D-MA) yesterday unveiled an innovative technology designed to give late-term breast and prostate cancer patients a second chance at recovery, without the debilitating side effects of today's chemo and radiation therapies. The Targeted Nano-Therapeutics(TM) system is the first of its kind in the world. The Army first developed this nano-technology to help improve battlefield repairs of military armor, but Triton BioSystems saw an opportunity to use it to kill cancer tumors.
