Hybrid Nano-probe Can Detect Live Cancer Cells

A new hybrid nano-probe that could lead to noninvasive detection and treatment of cancer at the level of a single cell has been developed by a University of Southern California scientist. Fabien Pinaud, assistant professor of biological sciences, chemistry and physics and astronomy at USC Dornsife, created a method for amplifying a biochemical signal on […]

Programmed Nanorobots Seek And Destroy Cancer Tumors

Nanorobots have been successfully programmed to shrink tumors by cutting off their blood supply. This major advancement came from Arizona State University (ASU) scientists, in collaboration with researchers from the National Center for Nanoscience and Technology (NCNST), of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. The demonstration of the technology, the first-of-its-kind study in mammals, used breast […]

Exercise In Teen Years Lowers Cancer Risk In Adult Women

Engaging in physical exercise as a teenager can help to lower the risk of death due to cancer and other diseases in later life, researchers recently found. Clarfying long-term impacts of modifiable lifestyle factors like exercise in adolescence is of key importance, and could have significant public health implications for disease prevention over the course […]
