Tiny nanospindles enhance use of ultrasound to fight cancer

Vanadium-doped titanium dioxide nanospindles encased in polyethylene glycol (PEG) and used in combination with ultrasound waves can kill cancer cells. Credit: Liang Cheng Ultrasound can be used to treat cancer when used in combination with molecules that sensitize the system to sound waves. These sonosensitizers generate toxic reactive oxygen species that attack and kill tumor […]
