Breast cancer is a topic that seldom evokes dispassionate, let alone objective, treatment. There is good reason for that. We all know, often intimately, of the tragedy this cancer can cause. Read the rest of this entry »


nanotech to detect early-stage cancer

Nano Technology - Future science

Stanford University researchers used nanotechnology and magnetics to create a biosensor that they said should be able to detect cancer in its early stages, making a cure more likely. The sensor, which sits on a microchip, is 1,000 times more sensitive than cancer detectors used clinically today, according to scientists at Stanford, in Palo Alto, Calif. The researchers announced this week that the sensors have been effective in finding early-stage tumors in mice, giving them hope that it can be equally successful in detecting elusive cancers in humans.
