Discovered How to Destroy Cancer Cells Using Ultrasound More Powerful
Discovered How to Destroy Cancer Cells Using Ultrasound More Powerful - Ultrasound technology is one way to destroy tumors and cancer cells. This is something done for a while and an alternative to invasive surgery. Unfortunately, ultrasound technology not only kills cancer cells but also healthy cells that are good for the body.
Recently, researchers from the California Institute of Technology and the City of Hope Beckman Research Institute discovered how to use ultrasound technology that is more powerful and effective. In this way, ultrasound can work selectively destroying cancer cells without disrupting competent cells.
Based on Ubergizmo's report, this theory was first developed in a laboratory at Caltech. The study revealed that there are individual cells that are weak against ultrasound at specific frequencies.
This theory is similar to when we watch a movie with a scene of a singer who can break the audience's glasses at a particular pitch.
Research leader, David Mittelsen, said that the project he developed was able to prove that ultrasound can be used to target cancer cells by using appropriate mechanical equipment to deliver the right sound.
"This is proof of this extraordinary concept for new types of cancer therapy that do not need cancer to have unique molecular markers or are located separately from healthy cells to target," Mittelstein said.
