“Nano-Drug” Hits Brain-Tumor Target Found in 2001

Cedars-Sinai

Employing new drug-engineering technology that is part of an advanced science called nanomedicine, a Cedars-Sinai research team has created a “nanobioconjugate” drug that may be given by intravenous injection and carried in the blood to target the brain tumor. It is engineered to specifically permeate the tumor cell wall, entering endosomes, mobile compartments within cells.
