Multifunctional endoscope views and treats cancer with laser

December 2, 2015

A research team from the Center for Nanoparticle Research at South Korea’s Institute for Basic Science (IBS) has developed a multifunctional endoscope that integrates transparent bioelectronics such as lasers with theranostic (therapeutic-diagnostic) nanoparticles (NPs). The scientists say it opens the door to potential therapies to test new medication and tailor treatments for patients with diseases such as cancer.

The results of the work have just been published in Nature Communications.
