Nano-sized technology has super-sized effect on tumors | The Source | Washington University in St. Louis
Nanoparticles (yellow) show that a treated tumor (left) has less blood vessel growth than an untreated tumor.Anyone facing chemotherapy would welcome an advance promising to dramatically reduce their dose of these often harsh drugs. Using nanotechnology, researchers at the School of Medicine have taken a step closer to that goal. The researchers focused a powerful drug directly on tumors in rabbits using drug-coated nanoparticles.
