    A scientist from the University of Texas San Antonio has developed a novel way of killing cancer cells using ultraviolet light. The new method can potentially help cancer patients with hard-to-reach or inoperable malignant tumors, especially young children.
    The new cancer treatment method was developed by Matthew Gdovin, the university's associate professor at the Department of Biology.
    The therapy involves an injection of nitrobenzaldehyde, a chemical compound, directly into the tumor to allow it to spread into the tissue.
    The next step is to aim a light beam to the tissue. This causes the cells to become highly acidic and eventually die. In just two hours, up to 95 percent of the targeted cancer cells can be eradicated, Gdovin estimated.
