Indian Scientists at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) & Harvard Medical School have figured how to use nanoparticles to deliver anticancer drugs directly to the tumor and then light it up in green within hours to confirm if the tumor is dying or regressing, rather than waiting for months while taking toxic chemotherapy and therefore proving effectiveness of that treatment.
The importance can’t be overstated as doctors can withdraw the drug immediately to non-responsive patients and offer alternate drugs and means as tumors tend to grow undetected even when one waits to check on size.
This follows a recent breakthrough in HIV treatment and one can’t wait to see the above ailments put paid to, perhaps by this decade itself!
Positive News. Always.
