Medical nanoparticles: Local treatment of lung cancer
Nanoparticles can function as carriers for medicines to combat lung cancer: Working in a joint project, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum München and the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich have developed nanocarriers that site-selectively release medicines/drugs at the tumor site in human and mouse lungs. In the journal, 'ACS Nano,' the scientists reported that this approach led to a significant increase in the effectiveness of current cancer medicines in lung tumor tissue.
