Next Step for Nanotech: Treating Cancer in Clinical Studies

Abstract:
Michael Sailor, a UC San Diego chemistry and biochemistry professor, leads a government-funded laboratory where researchers study nano-sized technologies like nanoworms, which swim through the bloodstream honing in on developing tumors. Using this technology, doctors might one day identify early stage tumors in patients too small to detect using conventional methods. These microscopic vehicles also show promise for delivering drugs to cancerous cells.

Q: How far down the line do you expect these kinds of studies to reach the point of clinical testing?

A: We are hoping to get into the clinic (in very limited studies) within one year.
