Researchers all over the world are rigorously researching cancer and new ways to eradicate the disease. Montreal has come up with a new nanosurgery which so far has promising results.

Great news for everyone concerned about cancer. Montreal has come out with brand new research that will benefit many cancer patients. The Polytechique de Montreal has succeeded in changing the genetic code of cancer cells. This new nano surgery uses a laser of all things. It is a laser with ultra-short pulses called a femtosecond laser. This type of laser deposits gold nanoparticles into the cells and it does not require a huge operation. This is the simplest surgery to date for cancer patients.

This nanosurgery will change the composition of the cells and may be able to stop the cancer from spreading. The new procedure does not destroy the cells like the standard lipofection treatment which is the gene therapy treatment that is used today. It is expected to prevent the spreading of cancer cells.

The study's results were published in the journal Biomaterials.

New hope on the horizon

The researchers of this new medical breakthrough have expectations for new applications in several diseases such as cancer, heart, and neurological disorders. The research has been funded by Montreal McGill University, Fonds Québécois de la Recherche sur la Nature et les Technologies (FQRNT), and several other Canadian health institutes.

Finally, something that will bring hope to many people is on the horizon.

There are a number of encouraging developments under way at present, but they will all take time to reach their full potential and make a real difference to cancer patients.

I only hope that - should I ever fall victim to cancer - one of these techniques will be sufficiently advanced to do the trick for me.

I also feel desperately sorry for people I have known who died from cancer in past years, before these treatments had been discovered.

I am happy to hear such good news Carol...
I pray that the cost of this medical breakthrough will not be too high when it is available for general use .
Many blessings to you

Here in Canada we don't pay for them
