Killing Cancer Cells with the Help of Infrared Light - Photoimmunotherapy

Near-infrared photoimmunotherapy uses an antibody-photoabsorber conjugate that binds to cancer cells. When near-infrared light is applied, the cells swell and then burst, causing the cancer cell to die. Photoimmunotherapy is in clinical trials in patients with inoperable tumors.
