IIT-Bombay professor Rohit Srivastava is working on a cancer treatment based on gold nanostructures that would cost just ₹10,000.

The laser-activated nanoshells could deliver the drug at the cancer site when heated to around 50ºC.

Speaking at a Bengaluru meet, Srivastava said the technology would help in healing cancer without surgery or chemotherapy which cost ₹3-5 lakh on average.
