Researchers Develop Novel Photo-Oxidation Therapy for Anticancer Treatment

A research team led by scientists from the City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has achieved a significant breakthrough by inventing a new class of near-infrared-activated photo-oxidants that can effectively kill cancer cells without requiring oxygen. The photo-oxidants induce a unique form of cancer cell death that can overcome cancer cell resistance. The findings offer a new strategy, called “photo-oxidation therapy,” and provide a promising direction for the development of anti-cancer drugs.
