Counting cancer-busting oxygen molecules

Ewa Goldys Low Res Edit 015928 January 2016:

CNBP researchers have established that a therapeutic dose of X-rays, in combination with CeF3 nanoparticles, can produce enough singlet oxygen molecules to be effective in photodynamic therapy. The finding has been reported in the journal Scientific Reports, published online today.

The complete research paper is available for download, from the Nature Publishing Group web site. A CNBP media release has also been produced.
