Bursting Oxygen-loaded Microbubbles Near Solid Tumors Can Enhance Radiation Therapy

Scientists at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia have developed a new technique to improve the effectiveness of radiation therapy for solid tumors. Their method employs nanotechnology in the form of oxygen-filled microbubbles that can be burst using focused ultrasound when they are near a tumor.

The majority of solid tumors are oxygen-def (Read more...)
