Cancer: a Potential Treatment Solution

ENTRY DESCRIPTION

Imagine: a treatment solution that targets the shape of the cancer cell and not the growth rate. Growth rate targeting makes it hard to treat kids.

My idea uses magnetism. It involves infinitesimally small magnetic balls that are injected into the patient, at a safe concentration, and contains extracellular fluid and nutrients for the cells so that they are not harmed. Then these magnetic balls are moved around in the extracellular fluid and are tracked by a magnetic machine to produce an image of the shape of the cells. These balls are moved collectively in safe concentrations in all the directions of a 3D Cartesian co-ordinate system axis. First, say, up and down the y-axis, then the x and then the z. This will, collectively, give you all sides of the cells shape. Then after the images are analyzed by the machine, magnetically, the balls seek and lysate or burst the cancer cells, where the cell components are then absorbed by neighbouring cells as nutrients. After the procedure is complete, the balls are collected by the machine and then are drawn out by a needle. How to make the balls: magnets have a north and a south so they can be spun in any direction while on a very slightly abrasive surface to be made to any size. Then these balls are filtered to only contain the correct size. First filtered for the correct ball size and smaller then just for anything smaller than the correct ball size, leaving just the correct size. It will look like a plasma. Note: the heart rate and blood pressure would have to be monitored and movement from it cancelled out in a calculation by the computer by way of body scan. Note: sickle cell anemia - a blood transfusion would have to be done while treated. Dedicated to: friends, the late child Ronan, Taylor Swifts mother and all cancer patients.
