Researchers at the University of Isfahan in the central Iranian province of Isfahan have, in their laboratory studies, developed a nanomedicine which could be used to cure cancer cells, reports the Persian-language Isfahan Metropolis News Agency (IMNA).\r\n\r\nThe drug has numerous features. It is more effective compared to conventional medicines used in chemotherapy and has fewer side effects, among other things.\r\n\r\nThe newly developed drug acts like a smart medicine. The drug is released in cancer cells when pH levels in cancer tissues drop, says a member of the research team.\r\n\r\nIn fact, the newly developed medicine is sensitive to pH levels in tissues. The drug also has a highly magnetic effect. It heats the cancer tissue, which helps better cure cancer cells.\r\n\r\nGiven the drug\u2019s high performance, says the researcher, it can specifically be used to treat breast cancer. The newly developed medicine can be used to treat genetic diseases as well.\r\n\r\nThe medicine has gone through numerous tests and research procedures.
