A new nanoparticle could help develop a solution for one of the most deadly forms of breast cancer.
Created by a team of researchers at the Queen’s Centre for Cancer Research and Biology (CCRCB), the nanoparticle was combined with a drug that blocks a molecule called RAN to effectively treat triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC). 264 more words

Warren Chan’s group published in June a perspective in Nature Reviews Materials entitled “Analysis of nanoparticle delivery to tumours” (Wilhelm et al). A key finding of their analysis of the literature is the absence of increase in the (very small) amount of nanoparticles delivered to tumours in the past 10 years. 2,436 more words
