‘Designer’ nanodevice could improve treatment options for cancer sufferers

21 octubre 2014

Cancer diagnostics and treatment options could be drastically improved with the creation of a ‘designer’ nanodevice currently being developed by an international team of researchers. The diagnostic ‘nanodecoder’, which will consist of self-assembled DNA and protein nanostructures, will greatly advance biomarker detection and provide accurate molecular characterization enabling more detailed evaluation of how diseased tissues respond to therapies, they say.
