Three research groups announced nanotechnology-based targeted drug-delivery systems Wednesday.
Researchers at Cedars-Sinai’s Maxine Dunitz Neurosurgical Institute have used a highly targeted approach to deliver multiple drugs chemically bonded to a transport vehicle. The objective is to bypass healthy cells, accumulate inside tumor cells, and attack molecular targets that enable cancer cells to grow and spread.
The drug transport is in an emerging class called… read more
