New research details how a sensor that can be implanted under the skin for over 1 year is able to monitor inflammation and detect nitric oxide - a molecule that has been found to show disturbed levels in the presence of some cancers. This is according to a study published in the journal Nature Nanotechnology. Researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) say the sensors, made of carbon nanotubes, may also be modified to detect other molecules, such as glucose, which could help monitor diabetic patients.
