Nano-sized “Cargo Ships” Developed To Carry Anti-Cancer Drugs And Markers Through The Body

Nano-sized “Cargo Ships” Developed To Carry Anti-Cancer Drugs And Markers Through The Body 

 The nanometer-sized cargo ships look individually like a chocolate-covered nut cluster, in which a biocompatible lipid forms the chocolate shell and magnetic nanoparticles, quantum dots and the drug doxorubicin are the nuts.

Scientists have developed nanometer-sized ‘cargo ships’ that can sail throughout the body via the bloodstream without immediate detection from the body’s immune radar system and ferry their cargo of anti-cancer drugs and markers into tumors that might otherwise go untreated or undetected.
