Nanoshells could deliver more chemo with fewer side effects

Combining nanoshells – laser-activated drug-loaded particles – with white blood cells could carry chemotherapy agents into tumours to reduce side-effects One of the difficulties of treating cancer is getting drugs into tumour cells. Chemotherapy agents tend to get pushed out rather than being drawn in, so dosage levels have to be high for the treatment […] The post “Trojan horse” nanoshells offer hope for more effective cancer treatment appeared first on The Engineer.

Nanoshells could deliver more chemo with fewer side effects

Researchers investigating ways to deliver high doses of cancer-killing drugs inside tumors have shown they can use a laser and light-activated gold nanoparticles to remotely trigger the release ...
