Tumor Monorail Slows Tumor Spread

Tumor Monorail Slows Tumor Spread
The Tumor Monorail captures and slows tumors in the brain by luring them into containers.

Developed with the aim of controlling the tumor growth rather than killing the tumor, the Tumor Monorail is designed to resemble the white brain matter, a favorite destination of the tumor cells. As the tumor cells migrate toward the mimic, they travel instead up to a chamber near the exterior of the brain, where they can be killed or removed.

The researchers' work has recently been awarded “breakthrough status” by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
