Taking Aim With Nanoparticle PEBBLEs

...he outside of the targeted cell and shoot reactive oxygen species into it, setting off "an avalanche of damage," said Kopelman. By staying outside the cell, PEBBLEs avoid a problem that thwarts many chemotherapy drugs. "The really bad cancer cells get immune to chemotherapy drugs ?they pump the drugs back ...

Why do insects stop 'breathing'? To avoid damage from too much oxygen, say researchers
