> Scientists at the University of Missouri have determined that gold nanoparticle prostate cancer treatment is safe to use on dogs. "Proving that gold nanoparticles are safe to use in the treatment of prostate cancer in dogs is a big step toward gaining approval for clinical trials in men," said Sandra Axiak-Bechtel, an assistant professor in oncology at  the University of Missouri School of Veterinary Medicine. "Dogs develop prostate cancer naturally in a very similar way as humans, so the gold nanoparticle treatment has a great chance to translate well to human patients." The treatment promises fewer side effects than traditional prostate cancer therapy. Announcement
