Scientists have discovered that curcumin to be an effective agent for killing cancer cells. Curcumin's effective has been extremely limited because it isn't natually soluble in water. Recently, however a team has created a sophisticated metallocyclic complex using platinum that has not only enabled curcumin's solubility, but whose synergy has proven 100 times more effective in treating various cancer types such as melanoma and breast cancer cells than using curcumin and platinum agents separately.

Biosensor chip detects single nucleotide polymorphism wirelessly, with higher sensitivity

Added: 14.08.2018 18:21 | 4 views | 0 comments

Scientists have developed a chip that can detect a type of genetic mutation known as a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and send the results in real time to an electronic device. The chip is at least 1,000 times more sensitive at detecting an SNP than current technology. The advance could lead to cheaper, faster and portable biosensors for early detection of genetic markers for diseases such as cancer.
