NANOCARBON CANCER RESEARCH USING GRAPHITIC NANO ONION LLC’S CARBON MATERIAL

In 2008,  a medical research specialist was contracted to conduct experiments on energy targeting of tumor cells by combining short cycle microwave with a mixture of Graphonyx material mixed in a carrier fluid.

PURPOSE/OBJECTIVE(S):

Evaluate the possibilities of energy targeting of tumor cells causing thermal damage of cancer cells using short cycle microwave energy and Graphonyx carbon nano onions as primary or adjunctive therapy.

MATERIALS/METHODS:

Non-Nanotube Nanocarbon called Graphonyx, produced by Graphitic Nano Onions LLC, was evaluated using short cycle microwave energy using tissue equivalent human.

TEST PROCEDURE MARCH 2008:

Normal gastric tissue (stomach) and gastric tumor cells were obtained from our research lab, provided under the Brooklyn VA lab. All tissue was subject to 10 sec of Microwave energy at 1500 Watt.

Test Tube #1. Normal Gastric tissue; Test Tube #2. Normal tissue with 1% Graphonyx material; Test Tube #3. Gastric cancer tumor; Test Tube # 4. Gastric Tumor with 1% Graphonyx material.

Samples were placed flat in a petre dish. Microwave energy applied. Cell nourishment was added to live tissue to preserve until the pathology was able to make block slides.

POST MICROWAVE TREATMENT PIC 2

PHOTO OF SAMPLES AFTER 10 SECONDS OF MICROWAVE ENERGY.

RESULTS:

Pathologist finding. Normal gastric tissue and Gastric cancer cells exposed to 10 seconds of microwave energy showed no change in cell size or destruction.

Gastric Cancer with 1% Graphonyx material with microwave energy applied showed pathologic cell damage similar to ionizing gamma energy, however microwaves are non- ionizing.

It appears that the core aromatic molecules have a strong electromagnetic ring currents in the aromatic sextants with the strongest EM currents in the central Coronene complex. This however must be studied further. It is unclear how cell damage mirrors ionizing damage when non ionizing radiation waves were utilized.

CONCLUSIONS:

It is our understanding that this new Graphonyx material has high absorbance of microwave energy which is rapidly converted with high effect to thermal energy invitro. Utilizing interventional microwave probes, the Graphitic Nano Onions LLC nano carbon should aid in targeting thermal ablation of tumors. Further research is needed to examine the mechanism of how microwave energy is rapidly converted to thermal energy and to examine ways of carrying the nanospheres to a tumor site for treatment possibly using antibody fragments.

With the above available information, in 2010 we began an extensive cancer research and development program (that is still ongoing today) with another University Research Facility.

INITIAL RESEARCHER COMMENTS:

“We have discovered that the Graphonyx GNO material has a tremendous thermal reaction to the electromagnetic field generated by microwave radiation. The testing that is to be conducted is to determine whether Graphonyx’s GNO material being mixed in a carrier fluid and subsequently injected into a Human Prostatic Carcinoma, then treated with a microwave probe, can generate sufficient radiation into the tumor, to thermally ablate and cause immediate cancer cell death. Nano carbon onions, for reasons still unknown, heats normal tissue much faster when it is exposed to microwave, therefore you can deliver more energy locally without burning up the normal tissue. Normal carbon or carbon nanotubes do not exhibit this same response. Traditionally, local changes in temperature during hyperthermia is monitored using thermal imaging. While thermal imaging is sensitive, it has difficulty monitoring temperature changes that occur deep within tissues. Moreover, it has limited spatial resolution, making it difficult to pinpoint temperature changes within tissues.However we have been able to control time of microwave exposure and temperature utilizing a Medwave generator and microwave probe. The microwave generator and probe allows you to set a treatment temperature, as there is a thin integrated microwave antenna and temperature sensor in the probe which delivers a phased array pulse. This leads to a feedback circuit which will cut off the energy to the antenna when a set temperature is reached. However it’s not always necessary to have the probe inside the tumor. You can place it near or outside the tumor but would not have control of the temperature, thus requiring the use of a different optical monitoring system. Please remember that microwave is not ionizing like gamma and x-ray treatment, so the radiation lag time of 10-20 year reoccurrence is not a carryover i.e. cyber-knife.”

TESTING SUMMARY:

“Evaluation of long term toxicity of a spherical nano carbon (Graphonyx) injected into known Human Prostatic carcinoma. It is known that Nano Assisted Microwave Treatment (NAMT) increases the absorption of microwave energy, specifically into tumor cells. This study evaluated the use of NAMT as primary treatment in human prostate tumors. Additionally, we assessed the toxic burden of Graphonyx used during treatment.

CONCLUSION:

NAMT maximizes energy transfer, with the conversion of microwave energy causing thermal ablation of cancer cells. By using shorter treatment times and lower power output of the microwave generator, NAMT reduces heat sink effect and surrounding tissue damage. Graphonyx NAMT appears to be not only a successful treatment of human prostate carcinoma, but also nontoxic in this small animal study. An additional surprise in the testing was the mice’s physical activity after treatment, as well as the life extension that occurred. No explanation is available at this time as to what caused this phenomenon. However it is our intention to pursue testing in this newly discovered area as well. We have just successfully completed a real time treatment of a mouse in an MRI. A (large animal) research study is also now underway. Over the years we have also successfully pursued various research and development contracts with other companies such as EMPA in Switzerland, Pinnacle Armor of California, and Black Diamond LLC of Houston Texas.
