Micro Transporters Travel Against The Flow of Blood To Deliver Drugs

Micro Transporters Deliver Drugs

In many cases, the precise delivery of drugs into diseased tissue remains a challenge. For example, drug delivery to pancreatic tumors is especially difficult due to its hypovascular and poorly perfused nature. Now, researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Stuttgart, Germany have developed microscopic drug delivery devices that can travel against […]
