Abstract:

Main cause for cancerous deaths in men is lung cancer. It has been reported that, smoking of cigarette/beedi is the major reason for lung cancer deaths (90%) in the world. The lung cancer also develops in non-smokers (people they do not smoke) but the chance is ten times lesser than the smoking people. Detecting the lung cancer in its initial stages are quite difficult. Treating the lung cancer in its advanced stages are surgical removal of the cancer affected portion of lung, chemotherapy and radiation therapy. To detect the cancer in early stage, nanotechnology is used. This paper focuses on the lung cancer detection by reaction of polymer coated magnetic nanoparticle with the cell line samples. The experimental results show that, the polymer coated magnetic nanoparticle can detect and treat the lung cancer.
