be "burned up" with a new technique
that uses magnetic pulses to heat tumour
cells until they die.
have found they can surround cancer cells
with tiny particles of iron oxide that vibrate
when in a magnetic field, causing the cells
to heat up.
mice have shown this can raise the temperature
of the tumour cells by six degrees above
body temperature, around the point when
cancer cells start to die.
hope that the new technique, known as hyperthermia
therapy, will allow them to target cancer
cells in the body and kill them without
harming the surrounding tossed or causing
the side effects of chemotherapy drugs and
