Tiny Particles Can Deliver Three Cancer Drugs to Target Tumors

Tiny Particles Can Deliver Three Cancer Drugs to Target Tumors

spectrum.ieee.org 17 Apr '14, 1pm

Tiny particles capable of precisely targeting cancerous tumors with fewer side effects have been limited in their ability to deliver more than one or two drugs. MIT researchers have overcome that limit for the first time by building new nanoparticles capable of carrying three or more chemotherapy drugs. Nanoparticles usually attach to drug molecules externally or encapsulate the drug molecules inside themselves. That has previously allowed researchers to make nanoparticles carry as many as two drugs simultaneously. But the MIT team built an entirely new type of nanoparticles with chemical building blocks already containing the drug molecul...
