Magnetic-guided micro-robots deliver cancer-killing \”Enterotoxins\” to tumors

Scientists use magnets for cancer-killing \”micro-robots\” to be delivered into the body

Micro-robots are made of a particular type of bacteria.

According to Inverse, scientists have developed a way to deliver cancer killing compounds called enterotoxins to tumors by using bionic bacteria which are guided by a magnet field.

Simone Schurle Finke, a microroboticist from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich, Switzerland and one of its authors, said: \”Cancer is a complex disease that’s hard for one weapon to fight.\”

These bacteria act as \”microrobots\”, which can track down and gather around a tumor. The bacteria then release their anti-cancer chemicals that they produce naturally and shrink the tumour.
