The independence is in the Ukrainian nightingale language, in the words of understanding, who belong to us, and who is a stranger. The words of which save lives and give hope for the […]

Scientists Invented a New Method of Diagnosing and Treating Cancer

Researchers from Delft University of Technology have invented a new radiolabeling method for the efficient creation of nanocarriers with radioactive salts. Radiolabeling can be used to diagnose cancer using SPECT or PET scans to determine where the radioactive particles enter the patient’s body and how many micelles are absorbed by the tumor. Unlike chemotherapy, which […]
