Nanoplexes deliver personalized medicine in cancer
Researchers are combining diagnostics, therapeutics and drug delivery in a "nanoplex" to kill cancer cells without damaging healthy tissue and causing the side effects associated with many cancer therapies. The approach, which the researchers describe as "theranostic imaging," targets drugs specifically to tumor cells, and the research is
published in American Chemical Society Nano
. Theranostics, using a diagnostic to tailor choice of therapeutics, are a key part of personalized medicine.
