Copper Oxide Nanoparticles Combined with Immunotherapy Kills Cancer Cells

It has now been clearly proven in various trial studies that Immunotherapy a process that employs a persons own immune system, can be used successfully to treat cancer patients when used in combination with other mainstream medical treatments. One such Yale study provided a major breakthrough earlier in 2019.In yet another international study, where a team of scientists from KU Leuven, the University of Bremen, the Leibniz Institute of Materials Engineering & the University of Ioannina came together to successfully terminate cancer cells with the use of Copper oxide nanoparticles.

The tumor cells were found to be particularly sensitive to the latter.The researchers pointed out that consuming metal oxides in large quantities can be lethal for humans, but a controlled administration of a small amount at the nanoscale can help in warding off external predators. Once these copper oxide nanoparticles enter a living entity, they dissolve in the bloodstream & become lethal for any cancer cells in the area.

Iron oxide was added to the nanoparticles giving them the ability to terminate cancer cells while leaving healthy cells intact. This provides a major advantage over the traditional chemotherapy treatments, which have serious side effects like killing all the cells in the affected area good and bad.As far as Im aware, this is the first time that metal oxides are used to efficiently fight cancer cells with long-lasting immune effects in live models.

As a next step, we want to create other metal nanoparticles and identify which particles affect which types of cancer. This should result in a comprehensive database. KU Leuvens Professor Stefaan SoenenDuring the course of the study, researchers observed that the effect of using only copper oxide nanoparticles on mice was short-lived, as the cancer cells returned after initial treatment.

However, when this nanoparticle treatment was combined with immunotherapy there was a vast improvement in effectively & permanently eradicating the cancer cells.The combination therapy was not only effective in making tumor cells disappear completely, but any subsequent attack by the cancer cells also kept them at bay as well. The supercharged metal nanoparticles, therefore, acted as the vaccine for Lung & Colon cancer the two types that were being investigated in the study.

Scientists used the cancer cells derived from the p53 gene to introduce cancer cells. The mutation of this gene accounts for more than 60% of all cancers, including common types like lung, breast, ovarian and colon. This, of course, means that this novel technique could eventually be used to treat all these cancer types.

Next, the research team plans to see the effect of this treatment on cancer cells derived from patient tissue. If the results turn out to be as effective as the recent study, they want to conduct a clinical trial.Complete research was published in Angewandte Chemie.

A combine harvester is one of the most important agriculture machinery when it comes to harvesting grain crops mainly such as - sorghum, barley, oats, rye, corn, flax, wheat, sunflowers, canola, and soybeans etc. For a large scale producer, harvesting season is the most crucial time and in case of bad weather especially rains there is a risk of damage to the crops.

Thus for a big scale farmer, it is essential to accomplish the harvesting process in the minimum time. Keeping in mind the same a Combine Harvester is designed in such a way that it completes three most significant activities like cutting, threshing and winnowing of the crops in one go maintaining its quality so that a farmer can prepare to stock or sell the grains in minimum time and get ready for next.How is a combine harvester beneficial to farmers?

Introduction to Copper Oxide
Introduction to Copper Oxide
Introduction to Copper Oxide Copper oxide is a compound from the two elements copper and oxygen. Copper oxide may refer to: Copper(I) oxide (cuprous oxide, Cu2O) Copper(II) oxide (cupric oxide, CuO) Copper peroxide Copper peroxide is an inorganic compound with the formula CuO2. It is an oxide of copper(II), with the two oxygen atoms as a peroxide unit. It appears as a dark olive green solid or similarly colored suspension and is unstable, decomposing to oxygen and other copper oxides. Copper(I) oxide Copper(I) oxide or cuprous oxide is the inorganic compound with the formula Cu2O. It is one of the principal oxides of copper, the other being or copper (II) oxide or cupric oxide (CuO). This red-coloured solid is a component of some antifouling paints. The compound can appear either yellow or red, depending on the size of the particles. Copper(I) oxide is found as the reddish mineral cuprite. Cuprous oxide is used to make antifouling paint for ship bottom (to kill low-level sea animals). It is used as a fungicide, coloring agent for ceramics and enamels, red glass stain, and also used in the manufacture of various copper salts, analytical reagents and materials for rectification plating in the electrical industry, fungicides for crops and rectifiers, etc. Cuprous oxide is also commonly used as a catalyst in the synthesis of organic substances. Copper(II) oxide Copper(II) oxide or cupric oxide is the inorganic compound with the formula CuO. A black solid, it is one of the two stable oxides of copper, the other being Cu2O or copper(I) oxide (cuprous oxide). As a mineral, it is known as tenorite. It is a product of copper mining and the precursor to many other copper-containing products and chemical compounds. Cupric oxide, or copper (II) oxide, is an inorganic compound with the chemical formula CuO. Cupric oxide is used as a precursor in many copper-containing products such as wood preservatives and ceramics. Cupric oxide may be found in over-the-counter vitamin-mineral supplements as a source of [DB09130]. The mean daily dietary intake of copper in adults ranges between 0.9 and 2. 2 mg. Common routes of cupric oxide exposure include ingestion, dermal exposure and inhalation. Copper(II) oxide nanoparticles (NPCuO) have industrial applications as antimicrobial agents in textiles and paints, and catalysts in organic synthesis. They may also be produced from electronic wastes. Cupric oxide poses potential health and environmental concern due to toxic and mutagenic particles generating reactive oxygen species. Copper(III) oxide Copper(III) oxide is a hypothetical inorganic compound with the formula Cu2O3. It has not been isolated as a pure solid. Copper(III) oxides are constituents of cuprate superconductors. Copper(III) is typically stabilized in an ionic environment, e. g. potassium hexafluorocuprate(III).
