A Good Mix: Nanoparticles and Cancer Therapies

Abstract:
Chemotherapy and radiation are currently still the preferred approaches to treating cancer, but they cause a lot of damage to healthy cells as well. Now, researchers are working on replacing these treatments with nanoparticles capable of carrying drugs.

Nanoparticles are a promising avenue of research in this direction, believe experts at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Numerous science teams around the world are working on this around the clock.
