In a recently issued patent application, Google provided details on a novel medical treatment that would involve sending tiny magnetic particles into patients’ bloodstreams. The magnetic particles, activated by a smart wristband, would attack cancer cells and pathogens linked to other diseases. The patent was filed in September 2013 by Andrew Conrad, head of Google’s life sciences division.
