Gold and Lasers Produce Plasmonic Nanobubbles to Kill Residual Cancer Cells

A team of scientists¬†headed by folks at Rice University have developed a way of killing off neoplastic¬†cells that often remain after surgical procedures and end up causing a recurrence of cancers. The investigators managed to produce gold nanoparticles with cancer antibodies attached to them that seek out specific cancer cells. The gold nanoparticles are sensitive … Continue reading Gold and Lasers Produce Plasmonic Nanobubbles to Kill Residual Cancer Cells
