Lung cancer blood test for smokers goes on trial

Lung cancer blood test for smokers goes on trial | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
Tests will be carried out on 10,000 patients identified as having a higher risk of developing disease...

 

A simple blood test capable of identifying lung cancer at an early stage is to be trialled by the NHS on thousands of smokers.

 

It his hoped the new test, developed in Britain and already piloted in the US, will drastically cut death rates, reduce medical bills and lead to an overhaul in the way cancer is diagnosed and treated.

17-Year-Old Girl Creates Nanoparticle That Kills Cancer, Wins $100,000

17-Year-Old Girl Creates Nanoparticle That Kills Cancer, Wins $100,000 | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it

The $100,000 Zhang earned comes with first prize in the Siemens Competition in Math, Science & Technology.

Her project, “Design of Image-guided, Photo-thermal Controlled Drug Releasing Multifunctional Nanosystem for the Treatment of Cancer Stem Cells,” was apparently as complex, thorough, and revolutionary as it sounds.

 

The nanoparticle Zhang created is already being referred to as something of a “swiss army knife” in the area of cancer treatment. That’s not to say it’s dull and rusty because I you didn’t take care of it when I was you were out camping, but rather that it has a whole bunch of useful applications.

 

The nanoparticle is delivered to tumors via the drug salinomycin where it kills cancer cells and deposits gold and iron-oxide materials to help with MRI imaging.
