Nanoparticles could break up plaques in blood vessels

Abstract:
Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine, Philips Medical Systems, Bristol-Myers Squibb Medical Imaging and the University of Missouri Research Reactor, all in the US, have used nanoparticles to deliver a drug to artery-blocking plaques that can form in the bloodstream. The technique should enable the use of lower quantities of the plaque-busting drug fumagillin, which can have unpleasant side effects.
