Gold Nanospheres Show Promise in 'Boiling' Out Cancer

Smaller than dust flecks, new therapy 'cooks' bad cells while leaving healthy ones alone MONDAY, March 23 (HealthDay News) -- Researchers say that using microscopic gold particles that target melanoma cells and then "boil" them when exposed to certain lighting holds promise as a new t...

Hollow gold nanospheres show promise for biomedical and other applications

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--A new metal nanostructure developed by researchers at the University of California, Santa Cruz, has already shown promise in cancer therapy studies and could be used for chemical and biological sensors and other applications as well. The hollow gold nanospheres developed in...

Targeted nanospheres find, penetrate, then fuel burning of melanoma

HOUSTON - Hollow gold nanospheres equipped with a targeting peptide find melanoma cells, penetrate them deeply, and then cook the tumor when bathed with near-infrared light, a research team led by scientists at The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center reported in the Feb. 1 issue of C...
