Citizen – Abdulrahman Diab
Dr. Hani Chowdhury, an inventor and recipient of the Excellence Award from the American Society for Cancer Research, has developed with a team at King Abdulaziz University a small nanotechnology slide that can determine whether the patient can respond to chemotherapy from the ground up or not. This test is shortened from 3 days to 10 minutes.
He added that in an interview with the program "Ya Hala" on the channel Rotana Gulf, that the segment was developed in cooperation with a British scientist, a safe treatment for cancer patients, explaining that about 70% of cancer patients do not benefit from chemotherapy because of its side effects.
He said that the slide only needs a drop of blood instead of a blood tube, to read the analysis and detection of response according to some enzymes in the body.
