Scientists at Oregon State University and Gene Tools in Philomath believe nanotechnology could cure cancer, and they've made a major breakthrough by using custom-made molecules to attach imaging agents directly to cancer cells in mice.
Therapeutic agents could be delivered using the same mechanism, said John Mata, a senior research assistant professor of biomedicine in OSU's College of Veterinary Science.
The nanotechnology may provide a far less-invasive method of treating cancer than surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatment. It could also be less costly, Mata said.
The OSU-led research will be published in the December issue of the journal Nanomedicine: Nanotechnology, Biology and Medicine. Mata is the lead author.
