【Episode 133】- Arrival of the Nano-Luminescent Orb - Advanced Materials

 
Professor Chen-Sheng Yeh, the deputy director of NCKU’s Nano Medical Research Center, led internal and external cross-disciplinary teams in developing a medical nano-luminescent orb technology—a “low dose of X-ray-excited long-lasting luminescent concave nanocubes in highly passive targeting deep-seated hepatic tumors”. After intravenous injections into mice, almost all clustered in the tumor, irradiation with low-dose x-rays provides a clear picture of the location and size of a tumor. Most notably, illumination for each x-ray lasts up to 3 hours at a time, which facilitates non-invasive diagnoses.
