BRICS scientists plan nanotheranostics for simultaneous cancer diagnosis, treatment

Moscow, November 20 (IANS) Cancer therapy a la paintball? Three teams from BRICS countries, including Russia and India, plan to embark on a project that uses the benefits of nanotechnology to simultaneously bundle both diagnostics and therapy into one package for treating cancer just like paintball activity.     Dubbed nananotheranostics’ (abridged from therapy-diagnostic), this […]

Scientists develop drug that re-programmes cells to fight cancer

Scientists develop drug that re-programmes cells to fight cancer

Canberra, July 20 (IANS) Australian researchers have developed a drug capable of reprogramming the immune system to fight cancer, it was announced on Thursday.   The landmark new therapy, developed by the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, involves removing immune cells from the body to genetically enhance them before putting them back in the body to […]
