The Onwards Medical Breakthrough
“Sometimes the best solutions are the simplest ones. This is the philosophy that Northeastern professor Vladimir Torchilin and his team took in new research carried out in collaboration with physics professor Dmitri Lapotko from Rice University and presented in a paper published Sunday in the journal Nature Medicine.”
“You start with two very well known and simple things,” Torchilin said. “Nanomedicines and nanoparticles.” Both allow clinicians to steer materials to specific cells in the body using recognition factors that are disproportionately expressed on cancer cells. In the case of drug-loaded tumor-targeted nanomedicines, cancer cells welcome much higher concentrations of drug molecules. In the case of nanoparticles, it’s tiny tumor-targeted crumbs of gold that end up inside the tumor cells.”
