New Drug Delivery System to Improve Cancer Treatment
Date:3/16/2011

the DOX anti-tumor drug is already accepted by the FDA. Other such drugs may be deployed using this system simply by engineering the DNA to bind to a different drug molecule.

The Syracuse laboratory is continuing investigations to check the toxicity of the system. They will also explore "smart" particles capable of attaching to cancer cells and responding to triggers that will activate drug release. Prior discoveries demonstrate that such nano-delivery systems may be within reach and could help deliver large payloads of anti-tumor drugs where needed.
