Russian Scientists Develop Nanosensors to Find Cancer, HIV and More with Mobile Phone

Russian scientists have developed a nano-sensor to detect cancerous tumours, viral disease markers for HIV, hapatitis and herpes, which appear when the immune system responds to incurable diseases. The ultracompact nonomechanical sensors help analyze chemical elements and detect bio-dynamics indicating the diseases, said researchers from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT). The sensor can help doctors identify tumour markers, ...

Popping a pill to detect cancer? Possible, says Indian-origin scientist

Scientists have developed a unique method to detect cancer using tiny customised DNA rings carrying instructions for making a blood-detectable biomarker that can enter both healthy cells and cancer cells but only cancer cells reciprocate making the biomarker. US researchers led by India-born physician-scientist Sanjiv Sam Gambhir have developed the futuristic method at Stanford University School of Medicine. The team ...
