Iron Oxide Nanoparticles Becoming Tools For Brain Tumor Imaging And Treatment, Emory University School of Medicine Study

EurekAlert! -- Tiny particles of iron oxide could become tools for simultaneous tumor imaging and treatment, because of their magnetic properties and toxic effects against brain cancer cells. In mice, researchers from Emory University School of Medicine have demonstrated how these particles can deliver antibodies to implanted brain tumors, while enhancing tumor visibility via magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
