Microwave dynamic therapy as a novel, effective cancer treatment

25 июля, 2019 - 11:48
Researchers have for the first time proposed a novel tumor treatment strategy for microwave dynamic therapy to effectively treat cancers. This technique can promote the efficacy of dynamic treatment of deep tumors in clinical research and could have a broad range of applications. The team found that liquid metal supernanoparticles can generate reactive oxygen species (ROS) under microwave irradiation. That makes them suitable as microwave sensitizers for revolutionizing the ROS generation techniques.
