IR spectroscopy and anticancer drug

Cancer is the most mysterious disease of the 21st century. It appears suddenly, develops very fast involving more and more cells in human organs.  The most interesting thing is that many people who do not have any risk factors get cancer and other people who have many of them don’t. That is why scientists exert...
