Dr. King, an Associate Professor of biomedical engineering at Cornell University, was quoted thus in the press release: “The ability to create stable coatings of Halloysite Natural Tubes (HNT) using an extremely thin layer of poly-L-lysine allows the creation of nanostructured surfaces to which living cells respond.”

King continued, “The nanotubes with HNT incorporated into their surface were found to enhance the natural CTC rolling mechanism. This allows the cells to be exposed to specific therapeutic agents or isolated and collected for diagnostic and research purposes.”

NaturalNano, a materials science company focused on developing and commercializing advanced nanocomposites.

Most penny stocks trade on the OTCBB market and the pink sheet electronic quotation service. Penny Stocks can be very volatile and can see gains as much as 500% in a day. Volatility in penny stocks is also dangerous because penny stocks can come down as quickly as they go up.
