Iron Oxide Nanoparticles Used on Brain Tumors

A fine dust of iron oxide targets brain cancer cells in mice and dramatically lengthens the animal's life, a new study shows. And when the nanoparticles are coated with an antibiotic agent, the beneficial effect is even more dramatic. The dust, because it is magnetic, has the added advantage of making tumors stand out starkly during the use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
