New Findings from SRM University Describe Advances in Carcinomas (Anticancer activity of Moringa oleifera mediated silver nanoparticles on human cervical carcinoma cells by apoptosis induction)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Cancer Weekly -- Fresh data on Oncology are presented in a new report. According to news reporting originating in Tamil Nadu, India, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Silver nanomaterial plays a crucial role in the growing field of nanotechnology as there is an increasing commercial demand for silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) owing to their wide biological applications. The present investigation aims at developing anti-cancerous colloidal silver using Moringa olifera stem bark extract."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from SRM University, "Electron and atomic force microscopic images were taken to analyze the surface morphology of the synthesized AgNPs. The effects of synthesized AgNPs were tested against human cervical carcinoma cells (HeLa) and cell morphology was further evaluated using 4,6-diamidino-2-phenylindole (DAPI) staining."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The efficiency of green synthesized AgNPs was studied with the help of fluorescence activated cell sorting (FACS) and was shown to induce apoptosis through reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation in HeLa cells."
