New Drug-Filled Nanocapsules may Fight Cancer more Effectively


drug-filled nanoparticles

Researchers have found a way of creating more resilient drug-loaded nanoparticles that enables them to target diseased tissue or cancer cells more effectively. The findings may change nanomedicine and its applications for treating cancer.
The field of nanotechnology holds a great deal of promise in the treatment of cancer.

For instance, in a recent breakthrough, researchers used nanoparticles to spot previously undetectable microtumors, while another study used nanoparticles derived from tea leaves to destroy lung cancer cells.

Nanoparticles are often used to transport drugs and deliver them straight to diseased tissue. These so-called nanocarriers were recently used to successfully destroy a particularly aggressive form of endometrial cancer, and to deliver a drug that genetically “disarms” cancer stem cells.
