Study: shapeshifting nanoparticles turn into tiny nets to grab tumours

By 29 May 2013

A study has been published revealing how nanoparticles can be used to send cancer drugs through the blood system covertly and smoothly, before they turn into tiny nets that latch on to tumours. The novel approach from the Gianneschi Group at the University of California, San Diego builds on a body of research that uses nanotechnology to hack molecules and turn them into programmed attackers …
