Cancer Cure with Nano Iron Oxide Particles

This is a variation onthe work published last year by MIT were nanoparticles of gold simply migrateddirectly into the cancer cells.

Both methods have clearpromise though the ability of twenty nanometer gold particles to actuallyconcentrate in the cells appears superior. Yet iron oxide is also a clear candidate and may provide advantages.

This is the future ofcancer treatment and the sooner mastered the better.  Either is clearly independent of biochemicalcomplications and are outright cures once mastered.  They are a form of nano surgery.

Both protocols are intheir infancy but should be rushed forward because for once side effects cannot be an issue, particularly when competing protocols consist of cutting orusing toxins.  Both materials have longbeen proven safe to use.

Breakthrough: Magnetic pulse therapy kills cancer

A major breakthrough has occurred in medicalscience's ongoing war against one of the greatest killers of all time: cancer.

The landmark research presented at the British Thoracic Society (BTS), lights the pathwaytowards a revolutionary new method to defeat the insidious disease.

The two researchers discovered that by enveloping cancer cells with microscopicgrains of iron oxide, the magnetic pulses will vibrate faster and faster untilthe cells overheat and die. No damage ensues to the surrounding healthy cellsand no potentially damaging radiation is used.

During an interview with the press, Dr. Janes stated that the new approach tocancer treatment can be used for treating various cancers, especially lungcancer. "We are still in the early stages but we think this shows a lot ofpromise," he said.

"This is an exciting breakthrough in the world of respiratory therapy aswe know it," proclaimed Dr. Paul Beckett, chairof the BTS's specialist advisory group on lung cancer. He believes thistechnique is a big step forward towards eradicating lung cancer.

"This innovative hyperthermia therapy is another step up in helping toimprove the outcomes for people with lung disease. It proves how important itis to continue to invest in research and development of lung diseases."

Another revolutionary step in the technique involves inserting the iron oxideinside bone marrow stem cells. Those cells zero in on cancer that has eruptedin the body. 

"We are concentrating on getting more of the stem cells into thetumor," Dr. Janes explained, "while also altering the size of thenanoparticles and the frequency at which they are vibrated at to increase theheat."

The key to success is heating up cancer cells to the point they are killedwithout causing any damage to surrounding tissue. That cancer can be eradicatedby raising the cell's temperature has been known for many years. The questionwas how to manage it successfully without causing any trauma to the patient orresidual side-effects.

"If you heat cancer cells up to 43 degrees C [109.4F] they start to die.Our natural body temperature is 37 degrees C [89.6F]. The technique that we areusing, we are able to reach that threshold," Dr. Janes said. 

The two scientists conducted extensive tests with mice. The technique raisedtemperatures in the cancer cells by an amazing 6 degrees—well above the theanimals' normal body temperature. At that point all the cancer cells died.
