Scientists at the Center for Laser Applications at the University of Tennessee Space Institute in Tullahoma have developed a laser that can target and...

 

The researchers say this technology is both easier and more cost-effective than the more invasive treatments commonly used. It’s potential use is particularly promising in brain cancer victims due to its non-invasive nature, the laser’s ability to go through thin bone like the skull, and the femtosecond laser radiation which according to Parigger helps, “avoid heating up too many other things that you do not want heated.

 

” Now that the technology has been developed, Parigger and his colleagues are in the process of commercializing it and making it widely available.

Brain-penetrating nanoparticle attacks deadly tumors

 

(Nanowerk News) Scientists have developed a new approach for treating a deadly brain cancer that strikes 15,000 in the United States annually and for which there is no effective long-term therapy. The researchers, from Yale and Johns Hopkins, have shown that the approach extends the lives of laboratory animals and are preparing to seek government approval for a human clinical trial.

 

“We wanted to make a system that would penetrate into the brain and deliver drugs to a greater volume of tissue,” said Mark Saltzman, a biomedical engineer at Yale and principal investigator of the research. “Drugs have to get to tumor cells in order to work, and they have to be the right drugs.
