DNA Robot Impose Lethal Gust on Cancer Cells
As per recent reports, it has come to light that researchers have successfully crafted a robot which has been developed from DNA which can easily be instructed for finding diseased cells in the human body and can therefore effectively deliver a load for slaughtering or reprogramming them accordingly.
The study, which was carried out by researchers from Harvard University, ended up with the development of a robot which was constructed by folding DNA strands properly into specific shape approximately similar to a clamshell. The researchers later focused on programming the nano-sized gadget for opening in the attendance of lymphoma cells as well as leukemia cells.
In addition, it was further revealed by the researchers involved in the process that in a laboratory dish, which was used by the for the purpose of delivering immune system antibodies which further resulting in causing the cells to self-rupture, were found immensely straightforward and effective.
The reports of this highly imperative study have been made available in the recent edition of the journal Science.
While expressing his opinion regarding the entire issue, Along with mentioning what all pros and cons can be expected out of it in the time to follow, an expert from Harvard’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering, Dr Douglas, said: “In diseases such as cancer we know if we can find every single last cell and kill or reprogram it, we can cure that disease. A lot of our current therapies fall short”.
On the other hand, various important comments were heard overflowing from a large number of matter experts who were entirely supporting the fact that the trend can prove heavily vital in the time to come. One such expert from Columbia University, New York’s, assistant professor Milan Stojanovic, said that it is a very vital step forward towards specific targeting, and added that it looks extremely exciting straight from the outset.
