New Cancer Drug Delivery Cuts Tumor Targetting From Days To Hours

DailyTech – New Cancer Drug Delivery Cuts Tumor Targetting From Days To Hours

To accomplish this ultra-speedy delivery, researchers used gold nanoparticle vectors to deliver photodynamic therapy (PDT) drugs, a class of drugs that burn away cancer with light via wavelength energization, to tumors.  Case Western Reserve University graduate student Yu Cheng, one of the paper’s coauthors explains, “Gold nanoparticles are usually not used for the PDT drug vector.  However, gold is chemically inert and nontoxic.”
