Nanoparticles Loaded with Drugs Can Be a New Way to Kill Brain Tumors

A team of researchers from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has developed a type of nanoparticle that can be loaded with drugs and move across the patient’s body to the brain tissue and kill brain tumors.kill brain tumors

At the present moment, the experiments were made using mouse model but in case of success, the research could provide an effective treatment for tumors that generally claim a patient’s life within only 15 months after diagnosis.

Lead author Fred Lam from MIT’s Koch Institute says: “Our goal was to have something that could be easily translatable, by using simple, already approved synthetic components in the liposome.  This was really a proof-of-concept study [showing] that we can deliver novel combination therapies using a targeted nanoparticle system across the blood-brain barrier.”
