South Korea Researcher Found To Killing Cancer Cells By Magnet

South Korea researcher have found a method to killing the cancer cells by Magnetic method.
Scientists wrote "we have demonstrated that apoptosis signalling can be turned on in-vitro in the lab and in a zebra fish in vivo living model by using a magnetic switch. Our magnetic switch may be broadly applicable to any type of surface membrane receptors that exhibit cellular functions on clustering."
They introduced iron oxide nano particles into the body. This therapy involves creating tiny iron nano-particles has attached to antibodies which bind to receptor molecules on tumour cells. When the magnetic field is applied the molecules cluster together, automatic triggering the death signal that sets off apoptosis. which causes the cancer cells to die without harming surrounding healthy tissue. This research tested on zebra fish, and they found that more than half of the cancer cells died without any harm of healthy cells. So we hope might be this research will be helpful for humans in future.
