Ultrasmall nanoparticles kill cancer cells in unusual way
from Medical News Today
Scientists are surprised to find that ultrasmall, fluorescent nanoparticles — originally developed to light up tumors for surgery — can also kill cancer cells by triggering a type of cell death that is not commonly observed. They report the discovery — and how they tested the nanoparticles in cell cultures and mice — in the journal Nature Nanotechnology.
