Cargo Carrying Nanoparticles
The nanoparticle carries a drug to cancer cells, where the drug is released. This reduces the treatment’s toxicity to healthy tissue. The nanoparticle is made of non-toxic protein, and it can be produced at a low cost. The nanoparticle has molecules that bind to
receptors on a cancer cell, which makes the cell engulf any nearby drug loaded particles. This novel type of uptake is advantageous because a single nanoparticle can prompt a cell to take up multiple drug payloads. This system has been shown to be a potential treatment of lung cancer, and it may enable the specific delivery of more chemotherapy drugs to treat other varieties of cancer.
