Chinese, French Scientists Develop a One-Two Punch for Cancer Treatment[Jun 07, 2018]

Chinese and French scientists found a potential way using tiny gas bubbles induced by exposure to ultrasonic waves to at once deliver drug and block tumor growth. They discovered the dual use of gas embolotherapy, a therapy that cuts off the blood vessels that feed tissue growth by acoustic droplet vaporization (ADV). The study was published on Tuesday in the journal Applied Physics Letters.
