Seek And Destroy: New ‘Nanobots’ May Revolutionize Cancer Treatment – 30 August 2014

RT logoMiniscule robots are set to start hunting down cancerous cells in the human body and destroy them with their nanoweapons, new research suggests. The nanobots to be used have had a tumor-recognition module installed for the purpose.

While it appears like something out of a SciFi novel at first, University of California’s Davis Cancer Center has already published the study in Nature Communications and provides what is apparently a complete solution through being able to both detect and detroy.

The nanoparticle is called “nanoporphyrin” and is equipped to both hunt and destroy cancerous tumors in the human body. A nanometer is one billionth of a meter meaning that the technology is extremely small.
