According to the National Cancer Institute, cancer therapies are currently limited to surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy – all of which risk normal tissues or do not effectively eradicate the cancer. Innovations in nanotechnology aim to direct therapies directly at cancer cells, resulting in a targeted approach to treatment.
Siva Therapeutics is dedicated to becoming a leader in nanotechnology cancer therapies and we are rapidly developing innovative nanotechnology approaches for the treatment of cancer.
SivaRods: each gold nanorod is 12 x 45 nm and only visible with an electron microscope.
Siva targets heat with photothermal (light-into-heat) therapy that uses precision nanorods and infrared light.
