Traceable nanoparticles may be the next weapon in cancer treatment
Small particles loaded with medicine could be a future weapon for cancer treatment. A recently-published study shows how nanoparticles can be formed to efficiently carry cancer drugs to tumor cells. And because the particles can be seen in MRI images, they are traceable.
First dna sequencing of cancer performed
Now, the first so-called cancer cell line in Sweden has been DNA sequenced at Stockholm’s new Science for Life Laboratory, a national research centre, which is partly managed by KTH. The dna sequencing gives a picture of what cancer looks like and is a step towards better understanding of how cancer arises.
