Nanotechnology fights cancer

by Gene on May. 19th, 2008

Scientists in St. Louis have used nanoparticles to target the blood vessels that feed tumors in rabbits, greatly reducing the amount of toxic drugs needed to shrink the tumors.

Meanwhile, doctors in California injected "nanoworms" into the bloodstream of mice to deliver drugs directly to cancerous tumors.

Both of these procedures are still being tested, and will not be available for human use for several years, if ever.
