Self-Regulating Nanoparticles that Kill Cancers Cells

Hyperthermic-thermotherapy is a developing method of treatment for cancer. It uses nanoparticles that deliver the drug to the precise location of the cancer and kill the cells by the application of heat. However, regulating the heat as to not affect cancer cells has been a limitation for the therapy. A new study from the University of Surrey reports the development of Zn-Co-Cr ferrite nanoparticles, which can self-regulate temperature and maintain the ideal temperature.
