Killing Cancer Cells With The Help of Magnetic Nanometers


Zinc ferrite coated magnetic nanometers are developed by the researchers from IISC Bengaluru, which is remarkably stable. These nanometers do not accumulate in solutions over a long duration of time, generating heat in the specific area killing the cancer cells. These magnetic nanometers measures about 3 microns, helping in navigating through the tissue and blood cells. Nanometers are not chemically fueled to drive them.
