Cancer Smart Bomb

Abstract:
Nausea, fatigue, hair loss -- chemotherapy can feel as destructive as the cancer it's fighting. But as this ScienCentral News video reports, researchers now say there may be a way to reduce many of chemotherapy's side effects and improve the precision of the treatment using a nanotechnological smart bomb.

"I think this approach is relevant not only to all cancers, but to other diseases, including cardiovascular disease, where you want to target drugs to specific places in the body," says Langer.
