A Tunable, Cloaked, System to Kill Tumors from Inside
Researchers have demonstrated that they can deliver a dormant toxin into a specific site such as a tumor for anti-cancer therapy, then chemically trigger the toxin to de-cloak and attack from within. It holds promise as a “complex and sophisticated” synthetic, therapeutic drug delivery system for living cells.
