New Nanoparticle Could Provide Simple Early Diagnosis Of Many Diseases 62

The specially-designed nanoparticles seek out hydrogen peroxide (thought to be overproduced in trace amounts in the early stages of most diseases that involve some sort of chronic inflammation in the body), and emit light when they encounter it.
