The research comes after a team of scientists, involving Durham University, past year created nanorobots able to drill into and destroy cancer cells.
Dr James Tour of Rice University in the USA, who was involved in last year's breakthrough with Durham University, said the "spring-loaded" nanorobot was "exciting", adding: 'It is a nano-Trojan horse!'
"Thrombin is a naturally-occurring protein that causes blood clots to form", Professor Anderson said. These blood clots led to tumor-cell necrosis, resulting in smaller tumors and a better chance for survival compared to control mice. After attacking tumours, most of the nanorobots were cleared and degraded from the body after 24 hours.
Life expectancy in treated mice was 45 days, compared to 20.5 days in non-treated mice.

The Flyers once again went back to the same old passive play that seems to always allow the other teams to get back into games. The Flyers won the first two matchups, but the Devils prevailed 4-3 in their most recent game on February 1 in Newark.
First and foremost, the team showed that the nanorobots were safe and effective in shrinking tumors.
The DNA nanorobots have not yet been tested in humans, but they hold vast potential as a safe and effective method for killing tumors and treating cancer. The machines could be used for cancer therapy or to kill off cancer cells entirely. The same tests arrived at the same results when tried on Bama miniature pigs, which meant that the method still worked for bigger animals.
More importantly, there was no evidence of the devices spreading to the brain, where they could cause harmful side effects. "The thrombin delivery DNA nanorobot constitutes a major advance in the application of DNA nanotechnology for cancer therapy", Yan said.
Researchers said the technology behind the nanorobots could also be used to deliver a wide range of drugs and even multiple drugs at once.
Arizona State University and NCNST collaborators are actively pursuing clinical partners to further develop their technology. "Combinations of different rationally designed nanorobots carrying various agents may help to accomplish the ultimate goal of cancer research: the eradication of solid tumors and vascularized metastases. Furthermore, the current strategy may be developed as a drug-delivery platform for the treatment of other diseases by modification of the geometry of the nanostructures, the targeting groups and the loaded cargoes".
