Gold nanoparticles are used to combat cancer and Alzheimer's disease
A precious metal which can give greater luxury use. Gold promises to be the solution some of the most feared diseases of the moment.
In Now news the journalist Carolina Bezamat you go into a global research, led by the Center for advanced chronic diseases. Scientists were able to, via gold nanoparticles, destroy cancerous tumors.
According to researcher ACCDIS, Marcelo Kogan, "nanoparticles are able to adhere to diseased cells, transporting molecules that detect these tumors”. That allows you to better apply the technique necessary to destroy cancers such as Melanoma or skin, that can be detected very localised, radiating only that sector.
In addition, Gold has been used for destroy toxic aggregates of certain proteins involved in Alzheimer's disease.
The studies suggest that nanoparticles can be used as complementary treatment to chemotherapies.
