Novel cancer therapy developed at University of Oklahoma based on photothermal therapy using carbon nanotubes

University of Oklahoma researchers have collaborated to design a novel, non-invasive cancer therapy that could eliminate tumors without affecting the healthy cells in the body. The cancer therapy targets specific cancer cells using single-walled carbon nanotubes that bind directly to the tumor, then are heated with near-infrared light. The OU photothermal therapy is most effective … Continue reading Novel cancer therapy developed at University of Oklahoma based on photothermal therapy using carbon nanotubes
