The Onwards Medical Breakthrough
MAGNETICALLY GUIDED NANOPARTICLES TO TARGET AND DESTROY DISEASED CELLS
“In a recent journal article, scientists at Rice University and the Methodist Hospital Research Institute said experimental nanoparticles impregnated with iron oxide may improve MRI imaging techniques and even be used to treat diseased tissue.”
“The iron oxide allows researchers to magnetically move the nanoparticles to desired locations and hold them there. Further, when embedded in the larger nanoparticles, the imaging efficacy of iron oxide—already used as an MRI contrast agent—proved to be 10 times better with a lower dose of iron than traditional contrast agents.”
