Gold nanoparticles are a better way to treat cancer than today's methods.
When we think of today's traditional methods of treating cancer, we think "chemo and/or radiation therapies."
What else comes to mind when we think of today's traditional methods of treating cancer? The answer is discomfort, pain, and mortality...This shouldn't be the case.
Medicine should heal, not hurt an individual, we need to get out of the 20th-century's ways of treating cancer, and start using 21st-century methods to treat cancer.
Gold Nanoparticles are inert, and research studies have proven that they can be made to only attack and kill cancer cells, so there are no life-threatening side-effects associated with this research.
Gold Nanoparticle Cancer Research has repeatedly shown, in study after study, that it should be one of the 21st century's better ways of treating cancer.
In this report, you'll find summaries of the most promising and compelling studies from the past month in regards to gold nanoparticle medical research, with each summary you'll find direct links to the original articles and/or research reports.
Here's what you'll find in this report :
Two months ago (November 2018), this guide published a blog post that was a Q and A with Dr. Naomi J. Halas of Rice University in Houston, Texas, seen here.
The 3rd question that was posed to Dr. Halas asked the following question:
"What is your perspective on how close or far away Gold NanoParticle Cancer Therapy is from coming into the market?"
In Dr. Halas's answer, she stated that her research is the backbone in human clinical trials on men with prostate cancer. The research uses gold nanoshells from Nanospectra Biosciences (a company she co-founded).
In addition, she stated that Dr. Rastinehad of Mt. Sinai Hospital, and Steven E. Canfield of UT Health are currently conducting human trials using her Gold Nanoshells.
Frank Billingsley is one of the individuals who was participating in the Houston clinical trial he also happens to be a weatherman for a local Houston TV station.
His progress is reported in the video below.
Furthermore, the following excerpt was taken from the 'Technology Networks' article about Dr. Naomi J. Halas's Gold Nanoparticle Prostate Cancer Treatment:
Doug Flewellen, the first patient in Texas to receive the new method of care, says for him, the procedure was a no-brainer.
To view molecular structures inside the body, researchers use a device called an Optical Coherence Tomography or OCT.
The imaging system is often used by ophthalmologists to study the different structures of the eye.
Researchers in this study combined the OCT with gold nano-prisms, the gold nanoprism's light refraction properties enhanced the details of the Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), making the images sharper with more detail.
The following excerpt was taken from the Stanford Medicine article about the study:
They "first demonstrated the technique by imaging blood vessels and melanoma tumors in a mouse's ear: Regular OCT showed an intricate web of vessels, all forking in different direction."
"But with the addition of gold nanoprisms, a scan of the same area was nearly opaque with vessels, revealing a huge number of blood conduits that hadn't been seen before." - Stanford Medicine
Adam de la Zerda, PhD, the assistant professor of structural biology, sees the new imaging technique as a "potential step for assessing cancer drug efficacy."
Currently, the study only involves the use of live mice as their test subjects because the gold nanoprisms have to be approved by the FDA before they can be used on humans.
However, the researchers are hoping to expand their research while they wait on the approval.
In a scenario where someone had an unknown issue that doctors couldn't pinpoint, this quick and low-cost method of finding cancer would replace the current cancer diagnosis methods.
This study revolves around the different ways that DNA acts in a healthy cell compared to mutating cancerous cells.
Scientists out of the University of Queensland in Australia found that if cancerous DNA, of any kind, was present in this experiment that the gold nanoparticles would change color.
The Lead professor stated the following about the study's results:
"We certainly don’t know yet whether it’s the holy grail for all cancer diagnostics, but it looks really interesting as an incredibly simple universal marker of cancer, and as an accessible and inexpensive technology that doesn’t require complicated lab-based equipment like DNA sequencing" - Matt Trau, professor of chemistry at the University of Queensland
