National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) Discovers Applicability of Quantum Dots in Cancer Photodynamic Therapy
 

Tokyo, Nov 16, 2004 (JCN) - The National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) announced has that the Single-molecule Bioanalysis Laboratory (SBI), one of its research laboratories, has made a unique finding that may contribute to the future of cancer treatment.

Researchers from the SBI have developed a material combining a lectin, a substance capable of specifically identifying cancer cells, and a quantum dot, a kind of nanomaterial. Through cellular experiments, they have confirmed that the new material is applicable in cancer treatments, photodynamic therapy in particular.

Detailed research results are available in the November 4th issue of US scientific magazine Nature Biotechnology.
