Iron-Oxide Nanoparticles Can Successfully Detect Ovarian Tumors In Vivo

Iron-Oxide Nanoparticles Can Successfully Detect Ovarian Tumors In Vivo

Google’s latest search initiative isn’t taking place online, but in the human body instead. On October 28, The Wall Street Journal reported that the Internet giant wants to design tiny magnetic particles to patrol the body for signs of cancer and other diseases. Google said its nanoparticles, less than one-thousandth the width of a red blood cell, would seek out and attach themselves to cells, proteins or other molecules inside the body. [More]

Novel Nanoparticles Can Simultaneously Perform MRI and Fluorescent Imaging in Living Animals

Novel Nanoparticles Can Simultaneously Perform MRI and Fluorescent Imaging in Living Animals

MIT chemists have developed new nanoparticles that can simultaneously perform magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and fluorescent imaging in living animals. Such particles could help scientists to track specific molecules produced in the body, monitor a tumor’s environment, or determine whether drugs have successfully reached their targets. [More]
