Nanotechnology Offers Exciting Possibilities for Breast Cancer

Abstract:
Nanotechnology, using particles as small as 100 nanometers in size, is offering exciting new possibilities for finding and treating breast tumors, according to speakers at the 28th Annual San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium being held this week. Two researchers from Rice University in Houston, Texas, offered enticing insights into how these minute particles can be manipulated to have different properties, and tagged with antibodies to target them specifically at cancer cells.
