Planet resources

A multifunctional nanoparticle could make it possible to use a cancer treatment called photodynamic therapy (PDT) to destroy tumors deep inside the body. Researchers designed the nanoparticle to absorb low doses of deeply penetrating X-rays which then set off a cascade of effects that killed cancer cells when tested in mice.

Medical engineering

Chlorin e6, or Ce6, is a common component in cancer therapy and has recently been used in treating night blindness. Science for the Masses, a research group of curious “BioHackers,” were interested in what the chemical could do for those who already had perfect vision. The result was astounding and could affect the way we currently approach night vision enhancement.
