For at least a decade, researchers have tried to
develop practical ways to use gold nanoparticles
to kill cancer cells. But perhaps you'll see the
nanotechnology in a cosmetic surgeon's office
before you see it at the oncologist's.
A new startup, NanoLipo, is working on a gold
nanoparticle-based liposuction alternative,
Chemical & Engineering News reports . The idea
is that doctors would inject their patients'
unwanted fat with the particles, then use a laser
to heat up the particles, which would melt the fat
around them. Doctors would use needles to
suction out the liquefied fat. Researchers have
investigated heating gold nanoparticles to kill
cancer cells , too.
While this might sound just too strange—that one
treatment could work for both an elective
procedure and a life-saving one—medicine is
actually full of stories of one treatment working
for disparate conditions. One of my favorite
examples is Botox, which has an impressive list
of indications. Before Botox began freezing the
foreheads of famous actors, it treated eye spasms
and other neurological conditions. It's now also
FDA approved for excessive underarm sweating
and urinary incontinence associated with multiple
sclerosis.
So which application of gold nanoparticles will
find its way to practical use first? Cancer or
trimming those last 10 pounds? The two
indications seem to be neck and neck in stage of
development, although cancer treatments have
been under study for several years longer.
NanoLipo has tested its methods in animals, but
not in people, Chemical & Engineering News
reports. Gold nanoparticles for cancer have
undergone some early stage human trials .

People are so lazy. Anything to avoid a diet and exercise.
