Engineering Minute – Cancer Treating Wireless Bioadhesive

Scientists at Wasenda University, in Japan, have developed a novel wirelessly-powered bioadhesive for treating cancers in delicate organs. The device attaches to the target tissue, like a sticker, and then applies localized photodynamic therapies to destroy cancer cells. Since the bioadhesive is non-invasive and does not require surgical suturing, it is able to be used near major nerves and blood vessels as well as fragile organs.
