New electrically-conductive polymer nanoparticles can generate heat to kill colorectal cancer cells
from Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center via Phys.org
Researchers have modified electrically-conductive polymers, commonly used in solar energy applications, to develop revolutionary polymer nanoparticles for a medical application. When the nanoparticles are exposed to infrared light, they generate heat that can be used to kill colorectal cancer cells.
