AC/DC hit 'Thunderstruck' has been used to help adapt the delivery of chemotherapy-related drug Camptothecin by scientists are the University of South Australia.

The track was used to provide vibrations, bouncing microparticles of the drug and allowing a thin polymer (plastic) coating to be applied. This increased the time taken for the drug to be released (by a factor of between two and 100), improving delivery direct to cancer cells. It's thought the research could also be used in other areas of drug delivery.
