Laser Destroys Cancer Cells Circulating in the Blood

The first study of a new treatment in humans demonstrates a noninvasive, harmless cancer killerTumor cells that spread cancer via the bloodstream face a new foe: a laser beam, shined from outside the skin, that finds and kills these metastatic little demons on the spot. In a study published today in Science Translational Medicine, researchers … Continue reading Laser Destroys Cancer Cells Circulating in the Blood
