The results of the surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy can be evaluated with the help of new technologies. Scientists from the Geneva hospital Brigham presented a new method for detecting cancer cells amongst healthy tissue.
To follow the death of the tumor can be started immediately after the start of chemotherapy. The technology is based on the reaction between the nanoparticles and Kapiti, an enzyme that is secreted into the extracellular space from dying cells.
When there is mass death of cancer cells, the area of the body begins to glow green under a special device. Scientists have made nanoparticles not only perform diagnostic tasks. Using the method developed can be delivered to the tumor drug.
