A New Step Towards Using Magnetic Bacteria in Cancer Treatment

Imagine a tiny vehicle, a nanocar (one million times smaller than a millimeter), equipped with a magnetic structure that allows it to be controlled and steered by means of magnetic fields. Let's imagine that we can insert this car into the human body and send it to the exact spot where a drug needs to be released or cancer cells need to be eliminated. Numerous scientists across the world are working on this bold idea, including the multidisciplinary Magnetism and Magnetic Materials group (GMMMT) at the UPV/EHU-University of the Basque Country. This team is involved in research that was published on April 26, 2022 in the journal ACS Nano and is taking a new step towards turning the idea into reality. The article is titled “Magnetic Anisotropy of Individual Nanomagnets Embedded in Biological Systems Determined by Axi-Asymmetric X-ray Transmission Microscopy.
