Amazing! and amazing that we can even develop this type of treatment.  Seems its mechanism is suited for localized cancer, or possibly localized treatment of mets, but probably not systemic treatment.  Seeing this type of treatment evolve just shows how we are moving forward and that we will see many breakthroughs in the years to come.

"In this therapy, near-infrared-absorbing nanoparticles accumulate in tumor tissue via leaky tumor vasculature, and then are irradiated with a near-infrared laser."
