Can electron clouds generated inside cancer cells close to DNA cause effective cancer elimination?
Cancerous tumours are made of cells that are very difficult to kill. These cells escape our bodies’ surveillance mechanisms and can clump together to form tumours. Dr Tamanoi has developed new therapies using special materials such as iodine-containing nanoparticles. Employing a precisely tuned X-ray beam to generate electrons from these induces DNA damage inside the cancer cells, in order to destroy the tumour masses.
Dr. Tamanoi has been engaging in cancer research for the past thirty years. More recently, he has focused his effort to develop new cancer therapies that could replace current radiation therapies.
