Dendrimer Nanoparticle Overcomes Drug Resistance

Abstract:
Investigators at Wayne State University have found that attaching the cancer drug methotrexate to a dendrimer nanoparticle can overcome the resistance to this drug that some cancer cells develop. The researchers also found that this potentially beneficial effect is not seen with all dendrimer nanoparticles.
