Iranian Researchers Study Nanorods for Treatment of Disease


Iranian researchers managed to study the gold nanorods to label them with other radionuclides while investigating the distribution of labeled nanoparticles, as a scientist part of the project said in Iran on Wednesday.

Dr. Soudeh Sajjadi, one of the scientists involved in the project, said that the researchers believe that gold nanoparticles have various applications in molecular imaging and carrying medications due to their unique physicochemical properties.

The nanorods are coated with polyethylene glycol [PEG] and are labeled with iodine-131 isotope, and they have applications in medical industries, especially for in vivo imaging and in the treatment of diseases such as tumors.
