A tiny implant has now been developed at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), USA, which would help doctors rapidly monitor the growth of tumour and progress of chemotherapy in cancer patients. The Nanoparticle implants are designed to test different substances, including metabolites such as glucose and oxygen that are associated with tumour growth. It can also track the effects of cancer drugs once itís inside a patient. The implant can reveal how much of a certain cancer drug has reached the tumour, helping doctors determine whether a treatment is effective in a particular patient. This is for the first time the MIT researchers have encased the Nanoparticle is a silicone delivery device, allowing them to remain in patients bodies for an extended period of time. The device can be implanted directly into tumour, allowing researchers to get a more direct look at what is happening in the tumour over time.
