With new Siberian solution, cancer surgeries to keep healthy tissues intact

16 Jul '14
Scientists in Tomsk, in Siberia, are said to have developed a more accurate method of determining the areas of human tissue invaded by cancerous cells. This is expected to help minimize the loss of organs and tissues during surgeries, Healthvesti.com reported.

With existing techniques, the levels of accuracy in outlining metastatic areas in the human body leave much to be desired. This forces doctors to ablate both a tumor and surrounding healthy tissue in a surgery.

The researchers from Tomsk Polytechnic University and the Research Institute of Oncology conducted a series of lab tests and found out that cancer metastases tend to arrest particles 20-to-100 nanometers in dimension. That has led to the creation of a special y-tracer about this size.

The scientists are currently completing preclinical trials and gearing up for a series of clinical ones to conduct more testing on tumors in the stomach and other organs.
