Magipics has produced a biomedical animation for the PeterMacCallum Cancer Centre. The animation describes the principles of PSMA Theranostics or ProsTIC, a treatment method for Prostate cancer. Briefly, this method involves targeting Prostate Specific Membrane Antigen (PSMA), a unique marker found on the surface of prostate cancer cells. Utilizing radioactive particles conjugated to a molecule that binds only to PSMA, the cancer cells can be detected and destroyed.
Here is the animation as it appears on the PeterMac website: https://www.petermac.org/research/ProsTIC/about-prostic
