Nanocomposite labeled cancer cells can be targeted and destroyed using lasers
...electively and locally enhanced wherever composite nanodevices
are present. Irradiation of the mix of labeled and unlabeled cells by laser light, causes tiny bubbles to form that disrupt and damage the labeled cells, but leave unlabeled cells unaffected. This technology holds promise as an alternative therapy fo...
