Scorpion's Sting Help Fight Cancer?

Post  Admin on Thu May 24, 2012 2:52 am

found a way to use scorpion venom to make a ‘paint’ which shows up cancer cells. This means that surgeons can be more certain that they are taking out an entire tumour, which can limit the damage to healthy tissue.How does this technique work has anyone else heard of it?

I have heard of scorpion venom being used in cancer research but I never got the gist of how they were using it. I would be interested in knowing if this may have anything to do with the bioluminosity seen in their exoskeletons when under black light?
