High-Precision Proton Therapy More Effective in Treating Certain Cancers When Combined with Thermal Therapy

University of Maryland Medical Center/School of Medicine

The Maryland Proton Treatment Center (MPTC) is now offering deep-tissue external thermal therapy in combination with high-precision proton-beam radiotherapy as a potential way to boost survival chances for certain cancer patients. MPTC is the only center in the world to offer these two treatments at the same facility, an advantage to patients because these therapies are typically given within an hour of each other.

Scientists Get the Drop on the Cell’s Nucleus

New York University

A team of physicists has devised a novel strategy that uses naturally occurring motions inside the human cell nucleus to measure the physical properties of the nucleus and its components. The method offers a potential new means for illuminating the physical properties of unhealthy cells, such as those linked to Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
