Gold Nanoparticles Help Study Cancer Drug Resistance Pump

Abstract:
A team of investigators at Nanjing University in China and the University of South Florida has used gold nanoparticles to develop a quick and sensitive method for identifying P-glycoprotein on the surfaces of cancer cells. Having a quick and easy assay to determine if tumor cells have P-glycoprotein on their surfaces could provide clinicians with crucial information to help refine how they treat cancer patients.
