UK researchers are employing tiny gold "nanoparticles" to deliver the chemical compound directly into cancer cells, tearing them apart instantly. The University of East Anglia (UEA) team used the gold particles as "trojan horses." Their small size enables them to easily enter cells, and the phthalocyanine is taken up along with them.
If all goes to plan, phthalocyanine nanoparticles could be available for human trials within five years and will be administered either by injection into the bloodstream or directly into a tumour.
