Here's a fantastic advancement in the treatment of bladder tumours. I'm sure that this technique will be able to be adapted for other parts of the body and different cancers. There's a lot wrong with our modern world unfortunately, but advances in the fight against cancer are one of the best things to come of it.

Samuel Sanchez, ICREA research professor at Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia in Spain and leader of the study, said: "With a single dose, we observed a 90% decrease in tumour volume. This is significantly more efficient given that patients with this type of tumour typically have six to 14 hospital appointments with current treatments.

"Such a treatment approach would enhance efficiency, reducing the length of hospitalisation and treatment costs."
