Scientists in Nottingham have developed a new therapy using nanoparticles to induce self-destruction of cancerous cells in brain tumors.

The electrically charged particles are able to specifically target the cancerous cells without impacting the healthy ones and proved extremely promising in treating glioblastoma, one of the most aggressive forms of brain tumors.

“To the best of our knowledge, this is the first successful demonstration of electrical-molecular quantum signaling technology in biology,” the researchers said in Nature Nanotechnology journal.

  • Dr. Frankie Rawson, who directed the study, added that the nanoparticles “convert an electric field onto a biological signaling event which then regulates cell functions such as apoptosis – programmed cell death.”

    “The team showed that cancer cells succumb to the intricate dance of electrons, orchestrated by the enchanting world of quantum biology.”

    “With the advent of bio-nanoantennae, this vision of real-world quantum therapies edge closer to reality,” she said.
