Drug-delivering nanoparticles seek and destroy elusive cancer stem cells

Researchers are sending tiny drug-laden nanoparticles on a mission to seek and destroy cancer stem cells, the elusive and rare cells that can cause cancer to come back even when years have passed since the initial tumor was treated. Encapsulated in the particles is the drug niclosamide — a drug commonly prescribed to treat tapeworm infections, but in cancer stem cells it turns off key gene pathways that give the cells stemlike properties.

The electronic origins of fluorescence in carbon nanotubes

Scientists have studied the infrared fluorescence of carbon nanotubes (rolled-up sheets of graphene). The frequency of infrared emission depended on the molecules bonded to the tube walls. By applying electrical potentials, they found that changes in the electron energy levels of carbon, induced by the attached molecules, were consistent with the frequency shifts. This allows the design of carbon nanotubes for bio-imaging, with tunable fluorescence by chemical modification.
