Full Summary:

Niren Murthy, PhD, featured on NSF's LiveScience website. Murthy discusses research using hydrocyanines to detect a variety of inflammatory diseases, including cancer and atherosclerosis.

Biomedical engineer Niren Murthy of the Georgia Institute of Technology helps design cutting-edge chemicals for the detection and treatment of diseases. In a study published late last year, Murthy and his colleagues revealed a new family of fluorescent chemical dyes called hydrocyanines that can be used as probes to detect and measure the presence of highly reactive metabolites of oxygen that are associated with a variety of inflammatory diseases, including cancer and atherosclerosis. The dyes could be used at an early stage of disease, improving hopes for treatment.
