Previously, cancer cells are difficult to eradicate causing many to give out the treatments.
A new cancer treatment method was tested by researcher from University of Texas at San Antonio named Matthew Gdovin. It involves injecting a chemical compound into the tumor.
The compound is called nitrobenzaldehyde. After injection it spreads into the cancerous tissue. A beam of ultraviolet light is then targeted at the tumor which causes cancer cells to become very acidic inside forcing them to commit suicide. In mice, 95% of the targeted cancer cells were dead within two hours.
Unlike previous cancer chemotherapy treatments, the new method is very specific. It targets cancer cells while leaving normal cells unharmed. It could also treat tumors in areas that are hard to reach such as brain-stem, aorta or spine.
Researchers hope to develop the treatment in the form of nano-particles which could be injected into the body to kill cancer cells in future.
