IIT Roorkee Researchers Make Breakthrough In Cancer Treatment


ROORKEE: An Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Roorkee team has developed fluorescent carbon nanodots that can serve as theranostic -- a form of diagnostic testing employed for selecting targeted therapy -- agents for cancer. Dr. P. Gopinath and his team from the Institute have extracted these nanosized (10-9 metre) carbon materials from the leaves of the rosy periwinkle plant.
Their work, supported by the Science and Engineering Research Board (SERB) and Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Government of India, has recently been published in the Journal 'Colloids and Surfaces B: Biointerfaces'.

The identification of cancer cells and their inhibition/destruction have been continuing challenges in the field of oncology and cancer drug research for many decades. In the past few years, nanotechnology has emerged as one of the most promising areas in cancer diagnostics and treatment and nanomaterials - materials having dimensions in the nanometre (10-9 m) range - are being increasingly studied as agents in molecular tumour imaging, molecular diagnosis and targeted therapy.

Of the many types of nanomaterials studied, carbon nanodots show considerable potential, said a statement from IIT Roorkee.
