Title: Breast Cancer; Nanotubes; Antibodies
Description: Photomicrographs demonstrate the dramatic impact of using nanotubes to selectively locate and destroy HER2 breast cancer tumors.

Those on the right were treated with a complex of antibodies and nanotubes and then irradiated. Both cultures then were stained with fluorescent dyegreen color indicates live cells while red marks areas where cells have been killed.
