Exploring the potential of magnetic hyperthermia to kill cancer cells

In this study, Bulgarian researchers investigated the potential of mixed ferrite nanoparticles with the structural formula Me1?xZnxFe2O4 (Me = Co, Ni, Cu, Mn) for cancer therapy. Their results were published in The European Physical Journal B. Magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) can be delivered close to tumor cells and activated using alternating magnetic fields. This new type of therapy, … Continue reading Exploring the potential of magnetic hyperthermia to kill cancer cells

Iodine Treats and Prevents Cancer

In concert with its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory actions, iodine affects several molecular pathways that are part of differentiation and apoptosis in cells. Ongoing epidemiological evidence points to iodine’s role in prevention and treatment of cancers through these effects.High rates of goiter (iodine deficiency) correlates with higher rates of cancer mortality. This has been known for … Continue reading Iodine Treats and Prevents Cancer
