"Tailor-made” microspheres as a chance to save the liver more effectively

Mikrosfery Y2O3 przygotowane metodą sol-gel umieszczono w kwarcowej kapilarze. Pokazano pojedynczą mikrosferę Y2O3 przygotowaną metodą sol-gel, powiększenie 150x.
In a few years, yttrium oxide gel microspheres manufactured by the National Center for Nuclear Research may be among the agents used to fight liver cancer. The results of the latest research on the impact of new microspheres on biological material appear to be promising. If further tests confirm them, in the future microspheres can be produced quickly and cheaply, precisely matching their characteristics to the needs of a particular patient. ----
