Tiny radioactive particles can kill single cancer cells: study
"Cancer cells can be destroyed with just one direct hit from an alpha particle on a cell nucleus."
- Lon Wilson, chemistry professor/lead researcher
Seattle, Washington, USA - Who knew that radioactive particles packed in DNA-sized carbon tubes that are injected into the body could fight cancer?
Though it sounds dangerous, it's actually a new way of targeting tiny tumours and single leukemia cells by delivering a potent dose of radiation, a new study finds.
