Researchers Develop Device For Detecting Atherosclerotic Plaques

...as of animals, with results compared to those from pathology studies. Laser-induced fluorescence spectroscopy is based on the fact that when molecules in cells are stimulated by light, they respond by becoming excited and re-emitting light of varying colors. Just as a prism splits white light into a full spec...

Nanocells cancer combination therapy acts as chemotherapy as well as anti-angiogenic drug

.... Sasisekharan and his team used the difference in pathology of blood vessels in the tumour and the normal organs to selectively deliver the drugs. Once inside the tumour, the nanocell's outer balloon disintegrates and the anti-angiogenesis drug brings about the blood vessel collapse, shrinkage and shut down...
