In preparation for preclinical studies, the Pittsburgh researchers are following up this work by combining the versatile ink-jet system with advanced live cell imaging developed at Carnegie Mellon’s Robotics Institute and Molecular Biosensor and Imaging Center to further understan...

'Trojan Horse' agent halts bone metastasis in mice

... bone tumors in 50 percent of the mice tested in a preclinical study, providing early evidence that it could treat, or thwart, growth of tumors in bone, a common destination for a number of cancers when they start to spread.
