New Findings from Hankyong National University Describe Advances in Adenocarcinomas [Size- and dose-dependent toxicity of cellulose nanocrystals (CNC) on human fibroblasts and colon adenocarcinoma]

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Clinical Oncology Week -- Current study results on Adenocarcinomas have been published. According to news reporting from Anseong, South Korea, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "A controlled preparation of cellulose nanocrystals of different sizes and shapes has been carried out by acid hydrolysis of microcrystalline cellulose."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from Hankyong National University, "The size- and concentration-dependent toxicity effects of the resulting cellulose nanocrystals were evaluated against two different cell lines, NIH3T3 murine embryo fibroblasts and HCT116 colon adenocarcinoma."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "It could serve as a therapeutic platform for cancer treatment."
