This time we wanted to highlight Professor Tebello Nyokong’s team at Rhodes University, since their latest research tackles two big unmet needs in cancer therapy: tumor hypoxia and side effects of the drugs. The team designed multifunctional liposomes that can locally generate oxygen within tumors to alleviate hypoxia, which is a significant contributor to resistance to radio- and chemotherapies. These nanodrugs also hold the potential to reduce problematic side effects of standard cancer therapies as a result of active tumor targeting and on-demand drug release following light irradiation with the ML7710 laser system @680 nm.
Modulight is very happy to be supporting this research. We would like to deliver our warmest congratulations to the research team!

About Modulight’s LASER-SHARP RESEARCH concept:
Modulight has launched a concept where our scientific board monthly highlights cutting-edge scientific research articles from our customers. Important selection criteria are that Modulight and laser product are mentioned in the publication, the impact and relevance of the results, clinical translatability, as well as scientific quality of the journal. The nominated research groups will be rewarded to encourage the great work done.
