UNC/NC State Joint Biomedical Engineering researchers have developed a technique for creating microscopic “depots” for trapping drugs inside cancer tumors. In an animal model, these drug depots were 10 times more effective at shrinking tumors than the use of the same drugs without the depots. Their paper, “Tumor Microenvironment-Mediated Construction and Deconstruction of Extracellular Drug-Delivery Depots,” was published Jan. 19 in the journal NanoLetters. Read more here.
