Gold Nano-Particles


Gold Nano-Particle Cancer Research is a non-invasive cancer treatment that kills cancer cells without hurting surrounding healthy tissue and it does not have the harmful side-effects.

Currently, several research facilities and Universities in the United States and around the world are conducting studies using Gold Nano-Particles.

Rice University, the School of Pharmacy at Queen’s University and MD Anderson Cancer Center are just a few of the institutions that are researching how Gold Nano-particles kill cancer cells.

Some abbreviations will be used on this page.
Including the following:

GNPs = Gold Nano Particles
nm = NanoMeter

Gold Nano-Particles

Colloidal Gold

Colloidal gold is sub-micrometer nano-particles of gold suspended in a fluid, usually water.

The photo at the right (provided by Wikimedia), is an example of how the size of a gold nano-particle, determines the color of the colloidal gold.

Colloidal gold is not a new way of using nano gold, in fact, before the birth of Jesus Christ (BC), colloidal gold was used to make Ruby Red Glass.

Colloidal gold has also been used to make stained glass because of the vibrant colors it creates through its interaction with visible light.

colloidal gold glass

In addition, to coloring glass, colloidal gold and silver have been used since the Middle Ages as an oral 'cure-all,' however today, many believe it to be as good as 'snake's oil,' while others still believe that it helps those who suffer from arthritis, depression, and drug addictions.

Some studies have been done about taking Colloidal Gold orally, but without a doctor's advice, it is not advised.

How Big is a Nano-Particle?

thickness of nanometer

Gold Nano-Particles range in the size from one nm in size to several hundred Nano-meters in size.

To help you understand the size of a Nano-meter, 1 Nano-meter is one billionth of a meter.

To better understand this visually, take a look at the picture to the right, 100,000 nano-particles, the size of one Nano-meter, can fit within the width of one human hair.

Gold Nano-Particle Shapes

different gold nano shapes

Researchers are using several different shapes and sizes in this technology.  It is still being determined what shape works best for killing cancerous cells.

Gold Nano-particles come in a wide variety of shapes, including, sphere, rod, star and triangle, nano-triangles are also referred to as nano-pyramids. 

However, although Gold Nano-Rods, Stars and Triangles behave similarly to the gold nano-Spheres, their shapes optimize their light scattering characteristics.

In addition, Gold Nano-Rods have also been proven to enter a tumor more readily, than spheres.

Why Gold?

The Surface Area of a
Gold Nano-particle

One of the many advantages that gold nano-particles possess over other nano-particles is that for their size they have an enormous surface area.

This amazing attribute of nano gold allows researchers to attach more molecules, antibodies or drugs to each individual nano-particle.

The following information was taken from a Stanford University article that included information about the surface area of gold nano-particles.

Gold Nano-particles have a tremendous amount of surface area as compared with larger particles.

A cube of gold with sides 1 centimeter long has a total surface area of 6 square centimeters.

But the same volume filled with gold nano-spheres with diameters of 1 nano-meter has a surface area greater than half a football field.

EPR Effect &
Surface Plasmon Resonance

Gold Nano-particles have a special property called the EPR Effect. 

The EPR Effect stands for Enhanced Permeability and Retention Effect - this is a property by which certain sized molecules tend to accumulate in cancer cells more than they do in normal cells.

gold nanoparticle

Furthermore, Gold Nano-Particles have a large surface area, so they bind easily with many proteins and drugs, and they can be activated to target cancer cells by over-expressing the nano-particles surface receptors.

Gold Nano-particles also exhibit a unique Physico-chemical property called "Surface Plasmon Resonance"

Surface Plasmon Resonance or SPR  is the collective motion of conduction electrons, meaning that when light or energy waves hit Gold Nano-Particles (in vitro or in vivo), it makes the gold electrons resonate, causing them to heat up. 

This action heats the cancer cells that the gold nano-particles are inside or attached to,  terminating them, without harming the healthy tissues surrounding the tumor.

How Do Gold Nano-particles
Target & Terminate Cancer Cells?

Targeting Cancer with
Gold Nano-Particles

gold nanoparticle with anti-bodies

Researchers enhance Gold Nano-Particle's Enhanced Permeability and Retention effect by adding antibodies that contain bio-markers that will help them seek out cancer cells.

Once the antibodies find the cancerous cells in the body, the antibodies attach themselves to the tumor.

What are the Most Common Forms of GNPs Cancer Research

cancerous cell with gold nanoparticle with anti-bodies

Currently, there are several different methods used to kill cancer cells using Gold Nano-particles.

Below, you'll find information about three of the most common methods researchers use to kill cancer cells with gold nano-particles.

Further down the page, is a list of the latest articles on Gold Nano-Particle Cancer Research.

GNPs and Infrared Light & Lasers

Lasers and Infrared light are one of the most common methods researchers use to kill cancer cells with gold nano-particles.

In this research, a test subject (mouse) has a cancerous tumor; the mouse is injected with gold nano-particles treated with Antibodies to seek out the cancer cells.

Once the researchers make sure that the gold nano-particles have reached the cancerous cells, by taking x-rays of the treated subject, they direct the light in the direction of the Tumor filled with the Gold Nano-Particles. 

Through Surface Plasmon Resonance the light heats the gold nano-particles, killing cancer cells, and destroying the tumor. 

This happens with little or no damage done to healthy tissue.

The 3-minute video below offers you an example of one way this is done.

Cure for Cancer?

GNPs & Drugs

Another common method of research using Gold Nano-Particles is to attach or infuse the GNPs with a drug or radiation. 

The researchers attach antibodies to the GNPs that also contain a DNA shell that instructs the shell to open once the GNPs have entered into their cancer target, delivering the drug.

There has been a lot of research using chemotherapy drugs attached to Gold Nano-Particles.  So far this research has shown the drug killing the tumor, with a lot less of the harmful effects associated with chemotherapy.

GNPs & Radiotherapy


Another commonly used method of research that kills cancer cells using gold nano-particles incorporates the use of radio waves, this research is also known as radiotherapy. 

This form of cancer research involved injecting a test subject with gold nano-particles with cancer targeting antibodies attached to them.

Once the gold nano-particles had collected into the cancer cells, the area with the cancer, of the test subject, was placed under a radio wave machine.

Studies proved that this method killed the cancer cells using nano gold's Surface Plasmon Resonance properties while leaving the rest of the healthy tissues in the body unaffected.

Gold Nano-particles &
The Possibilities...

gold hope ribbon

Gold nano-particle cancer research is showing great results although there are still many hurdles that this research needs to overcome, most notably 'human trials.'

The author of the guide will to continue to work to bring awareness to this breakthrough cancer research in the hope for a future that when someone is diagnosed with cancer, there will be no pain, nor will they  question their mortality.

Please help however you can, by sharing this website, by supporting it through a donation or by supporting one of our numerous affiliates or sponsors.

Thank you for visiting the guide and for your time, and let others know there are non-harmful possibilities beyond traditional chemotherapy for treating cancer.
