Nano-medicine is advancing from day to day, now researchers have successfully programmed nanorobots to shrink tumors by cutting off their blood supply.
Hao Yan is the director of the ASU Biodesign Institute’s Center for Molecular Design and Biomimetics and the Milton Glick Professor in the School of Molecular Sciences.
“We have developed the first fully autonomous, DNA robotic system for a very precise drug design and targeted cancer therapy,” said Hao Yan.
“Moreover, this technology is a strategy that can be used for many types of cancer, since all solid tumour-feeding blood vessels are essentially the same,” said Dr Yan.
These microscopic nano-robots can can operate in much perception inside the human body, researchers say that soon we can heal some forms of diseases, and even stop tumors from growing.
