New Cancer Treatment: Microwaves?

The trouble with current cancer treatments is how to kill cancer cells without hurting healthy cells. Researcher Wei Chen may have the answer. Unlike x-rays, microwaves can focus directly on tumors without harming the surrounding tissue. It’s an interesting find considering the rumors surrounding microwaves possibly causing cancer. Chen said, “Our new method using microwaves can propagate through all types of tissues and target deeply situated tumors.” The study blends photodynamic therapy with microwave treatment, exposing the cancercells to a nanoparticle that generates toxic singlet oxygen.
