The company has developed an innovative cancer treatment using magnetosomes (magnetic nanoparticles synthesized by magnetotactic bacteria), which are administered to tumors and heated by applying an alternating magnetic field. This method of treatment is called magnetic hyperthermia. The heat released by the magnetosomes induces antitumor activity.
