X-ray triggered nano-bubbles to target cancer

from Phys.Org

Innovative drug filled nano-bubbles, able to be successfully triggered in the body by X-rays, have been developed by researchers paving the way for a new range of cancer treatments for patients. The tiny bubbles, known as liposomes, are commonly used in pharmacology to encapsulate drugs, making them more effective in the treatment of disease. Researchers have now been able to engineer these liposomes to discharge their drug cargo on-demand, once activated by standard X-rays. Initial testing has shown this technique to be highly efficient in killing bowel cancer cells. more
