Noninvasive, Harmless Cancer Killing Technology goes to FDA trial


A system uses a laser to both identify, and destroy, cancer cells in the blood in 27 out of the 28 people tested and with a sensitivity that is about 1,000 times better than what is currently available.

The system can scan up to 1 liter of blood per hour, and kill the cancerous cells in real time, all while keeping the blood in they body.

Basically, the technology uses a laser to identify the abnormal cells, quickly heat those cells to a point where thermal expansion causes vapor bubbles to form on those cells, which then collapse.

The FDA has just approved this device be allowed to proceed to a clinical trial.


Vladimir Zharov, director of the nanomedicine center at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences and lead researcher says:

“This technology has the potential to significantly inhibit metastasis progression,”

“In one patient, we destroyed 96 percent of the tumor cells”
