The researchers treated breast cancer cells.

Them. The technique is angle-resolved low coherence interferometry as a, and it in the laboratory in the laboratory of Adam Wax in the biomedical engineering department at Duke’s Pratt School. We have observed that in cells experiencing apoptosis, there were marked changes – both early and later in the process, then up to one day – in cellular structure that could be detected by light scattering, Ostrander said. In contrast, in cells with a dose of drug, which is not treated induces apoptosis, we saw some early changes, but no subsequent changes. .. The researchers treated breast cancer cells, in a bowl with one of two standard chemotherapy drugs, paclitaxel and doxorubicin. Then light supplied to the cells at various time intervals and observing how the light is deflected, depending on the size and shape of the cells them.

If successful in laboratory studies, this technique as a non-invasive way to quickly determine therapy strategy.rapy works used used, said Ostrander. – Typically, patients undergo chemotherapy and then a few weeks later for a scan to measure changes in their tumor size, she said. Down the road, we are confident to say that it way faster, if a patient is treated successfully, or when he or she might benefit from an adjustment to their therapy strategy. .
