Cornell Dots Surprise by Killing Tumor Cells

Cornell dots, or C dots for short, are tiny silica particles that fluoresce under certain conditions. They have shown promise as a way of tagging tumors in preparation for removal, but during safety testing of the C dots a remarkable new ability was discovered. When the peptide-coated C dots were introduced in high doses to […] This post Cornell Dots Surprise by Killing Tumor Cells appeared first on Medgadget.
