New Electrically Conductive Polymer Nanoparticles Can Generate Heat to Kill Colorectal Cancer Cells
11/21/2012 7:33:04 AM
Researchers at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center have modified electrically conductive polymers, commonly used in solar energy applications, to develop revolutionary polymer nanoparticles (PNs) for a medical application. When the nanoparticles are exposed to infrared light, they generate heat that can be used to kill colorectal cancer cells.
