Nuclei Oxidation Therapy: A New Take on Localized Antineoplastics
Abstract:The focus of my project is to determine whether the nucleus of a tumor cell can be oxidized with a hydrogen peroxide solution delivered via a nanoparticle delivery system. Theoretically, the excessive oxidation will inhibit reproduction of the tumor cell. In conclusion, further research will be needed to determine whether an encapsulated oxidant can penetrate the tumor cell's natural antioxidant defence mechanism.
