US Indian Scientist Rao Gets Patent for Cancer Treatment



Rao Papineni, chief scientist and senior principal investigator in medical applications of nanotechnology at Carestream Health, Inc USA received patent on a path-breaking innovation in the field of cancer.

Rao, along with his colleague Alan Pollack, chairman of the Department of Radiation Oncology, University of Miami came up with a system in which a nano-particle carries the payload of anti-cancer drug and releases it only in the cancerous cell and this way the cells lying around are protected.

“This patent will potentially change the way radiation is administered. It will improve localisation and monitoring of tumour and will help in highly targeted delivery of drugs to kill cancer cells,” Rao said.

“In rough terms, nano-particles are like payload delivery vehicles that can enhance damage to cancer tissues and simultaneously reduce the toxicity of normal and healthy tissues during radiation treatment’’, he added.

2: Huja was not elected mayor by public election. He was appointed the position by the city council which he is a member of. Most people in Charlottesville have no idea that he is mayor because he wasn't elected in by the public.
