INST efforts to make magnetic hyperthermia-mediated cancer therapy as desired therapy for inoperable tumours

INST efforts to make magnetic hyperthermia-mediated cancer therapy as desired therapy for inoperable tumours

Kolkata, Aug 15 (UNI) Magnetic hyperthermia-mediated cancer therapy (MHCT), a non-invasive cancer treatment technique, involves the delivery and localisation of magnetic materials within the targeted tumour site followed by subsequent application of an alternating magnetic field (AMF), thereby generating heat at the tumour site.
It can efficiently act against deep-seated inaccessible solid tumours like glioblastoma and is highly thermo-sensitive towards normal cells with minimal toxicity against healthy counterparts. Scientists are on the lookout for new materials which can make this treatment more efficient.
Scientists from Institute of Nano Science & Technology an autonomous institute of Department of Science and Technology (DST), under the Central Government have synthesised different magnetic nano-transducers like Stevioside-coated magnetite nanoparticles; Citric acid-coated Magnetic nanoclusters and Manganese and Zinc doped magnetite nanoparticles for successful application as magnetic hyperthermia agents for cancer therapy.
