Taking Aim With Nanoparticle PEBBLEs

...that thwarts many chemotherapy drugs. "The really bad cancer cells get immune to chemotherapy drugs ?they pump the drugs back out," Kopelman said. Cancer cells can't do that to PEBBLEs, though, because PEBBLEs are already on the outside. Another advantage: the "killer oxygen" that PEBBLEs deliver to can...

...o 7 percent of cells had traded both copies of the bad gene for the correct version. With the correct IL-2R gene in place, levels of the IL-2R protein also were restored. The change to the cells seems permanent, Dr. Porteus said, and the correct gene is easily maintained after many cell divisions. "Th...
