Microwave dynamic therapy as a novel, effective cancer treatment

NanoWerk.com - Thu, 07/25/2019 - 12:48
Researchers have for the first time proposed a novel tumor treatment strategy for microwave dynamic therapy to effectively treat cancers. This technique can promote the efficacy of dynamic treatment of deep tumors in clinical research and could have a broad range of applications. The team found that liquid metal supernanoparticles can generate reactive oxygen species (ROS) under microwave irradiation. That makes them suitable as microwave sensitizers for revolutionizing the ROS generation techniques.

Artificial throat could someday help mute people 'speak'

ScienceDaily.com: Nanotechnology News - Wed, 07/24/2019 - 18:38
Most people take speech for granted, but it's actually a complex process that involves both motions of the mouth and vibrations of folded tissues, called vocal cords, within the throat. If the vocal cords sustain injuries or other lesions, a person can lose the ability to speak. Now, researchers have developed a wearable artificial throat that, when attached to the neck like a temporary tattoo, can transform throat movements into sounds.

Towards a light driven molecular assembler

ScienceDaily.com: Nanotechnology News - Tue, 07/23/2019 - 18:40
A team of chemists built the first artificial assembler, which uses light as the energy source. These molecular machines are performing synthesis in a similar way as biological nanomachines. Advantages are fewer side products, enantioselectivity, and shorter synthetic pathways since the mechanosynthesis forces the molecules into a predefined reaction channel.
