Microwaves Target Deep Tumors

Physicists at the University of Texas at Arlington have shown that using microwaves to activate photosensitive nanoparticles produces tissue-heating effects that ultimately lead to cell death within solid tumors. The new concept, which combines microwaves with photodynamic therapy, opens new avenues for targeting deeper tumors and has proven effective in rapidly and safely reducing tumor size.
