Interactions with Cancer Stem Cells
How do you study material (nano) interactions with Cancer Stem Cells ?
Stem cell transplants commonly are used to treat leukemia and lymphoma, cancers that affect the blood and lymphatic system. It also can help patients recover from or better tolerate cancer treatment. Nano sized materials have particular advantages for cancer treatment with distinct features relative to low molecular weight drugs. These properties are being effectively exploited for improved delivery of chemotherapeutic drugs resulting in both enhanced anticancer activity and reduced systemic toxicity.
