New chip promising for tumor-targeting research

22 septiembre 2014

Researchers have developed a chip capable of simulating a tumor’s ‘microenvironment’ and plan to use the new system to test the effectiveness of nanoparticles and drugs that target cancer. The new system, called a tumor-microenvironment-on-chip (T-MOC) device, will allow researchers to study the complex environment surrounding tumors and the barriers that prevent the targeted delivery of therapeutic agents.
