Quantum physics helps destroy cancer cells
(Kyoto University) Cancer cell death is triggered within three days when X-rays are shone onto tumor tissue containing iodine-carrying nanoparticles. The iodine releases electrons that break the tumor's DNA, leading to cell death. The findings, by scientists at Kyoto University's Institute for Integrated Cell-Material Sciences (iCeMS) and colleagues in Japan and the US, were published in the journal Scientific Reports.

Microcrystal electron diffraction supports a new drug development pipeline
(CCDC - Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre) Solving structures of potential therapeutics using X-ray diffraction (XRD) is usually a pivotal step in drug development. But XRD generally requires large, well-ordered crystals. Advancements in automated data collection and processing have increased interest in electron diffraction as an XRD alternative. Electron diffraction uses a beam of electrons rather than X-rays to obtain structures. Here researchers present a new drug development pipeline using electron diffraction for use when XRD may not be an option. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)
