Fujifilm has completed the first manufacturing facility in Japan to make drug-delivering liposomes to use for cancer fighting drugs it is developing.
Cornell Professor Ulrich Wiesner’s C-dots are showing more and more that they could be the next big step in nanotech drug delivery. In their latest incarnation, the diagnostic and delivery combination particles have shown that they can alone deprive cancer cells of nutrients, resulting in their death.
Researchers at the University of Illinois have successfully used nanoparticles to deliver bone cancer drugs to dogs, which are closer in size and biology to humans and have naturally occurring bone cancers that behave a lot like human bone tumors.
