Nanoparticle Nose to Sniff Out Cancer

A team of researchers at the university of Massachusettes, Amherest and Georgia Institute of Technology have developed a “chemical nose” made up of an array of polymers that can not only differentiate non-cancerous cells from cancerous cells but can also tell the difference between metastatic and non-metastatic cancer cell lines.

A team of researchers at the university of Massachusettes, Amherest and Georgia Institute of Technology have developed a “chemical nose” made up of an array of polymers that can not only differentiate non-cancerous cells from cancerous cells but can also tell the difference between metastatic and non-metastatic cancer cell lines. This could be a great developemnt for early treatment allowing reduced mortality rates due to earlier detection allowing earlier intervention. Posibly reducing the amount of medical intervention that is needed or just reducing the amount of medical intervention to the patient -CT
