IIT teams use plant extract, heat to kill skin cancer cells

In the International Journal of Biological Macromolecules, the results were published for the research to the skin cancer cells.

  • A two-team related to IITs discovered this plant extract.
  • A plant extract has been found to selectively kill skin cancer cells.
  • Because of the enhanced version of reactive oxygen species (ROS), this extract is especially toxic to cancer cells.
  • There has been found a nanoparticle formulation of a chlorophyll-rich biomolecular extract of an Indian medicinal plant Anthocephalus cadamba, which has been combined with a near-infrared dye.
  • Near-infrared light was used to heating up the Nano-formulation.
  • In a FDA-approved polymer to produce the Nano-formulation, the extract and the dye together are encapsulated.
