Scientists Test New Way to Get Drugs to Cancer Cells
... can be manipulated to control how long they remain in the bloodstream.
Johns Hopkins University researchers attached cancer-specific antibodies to liposomes
to create immunoliposomes that travel through the bloodstream and seek out tumors. When they come in contact with tumors, the immunoliposomes deliver ...
Potential for noninvasive brain tumor treatment
... system in conjunction with chemotherapy drugs encased in heat-sensitive microbubbles called liposomes.
"Physicians would inject drug-carrying liposomes
