Nanomaterial “Sniper” Targets Cancer Stem Cells

Source: Asian Scientist

(BEIJING, China) – While much research has focused on using nanomaterials as drug delivery agents, a new study suggests that they can be directly used as therapeutic agents. The work, published in Nature Communications, describes a nanomaterial that is non-toxic to normal cells but effectively kills cancer stem cells.

Traditional cancer therapies focus on […]
