Graphene Uses in Medicine
Surprisingly, graphene is making rounds in the medical aspect. As it turns out, it has become the answer to killing cancer stem cells. Thanks to the nanoscale graphene oxide, cancer stem cells no longer expand across multiple tumor types. And based on the series of tests, it is proven to be effective in inhibiting tumor-sphere formation in multiple cell lines across six varying cancer types such as breast, ovarian, prostate, lung and pancreatic, and brain cancers.
Graphene also aids in the development of real-like prosthetics and dental implants. According to researchers of Europe, graphene helps prosthetics become more natural in movement and secure in grip. More than that, it develops more comfort and responsiveness to the wearer.
As for dental implants, graphene is the best alternative to titanium-based detail implants. With the problems faced with these titanium-based implants, only graphene can counteract them. What’s more, it aids in improving the cellular functions of in vitro and in vivo applications of dental implants.
