A New Therapy without Side Effects Could Improve Dramatically Chemotherapy Treatments

This significant progress –based on nanotechnology– has been achieved by researchers of the universities of Granada, Edimbourgh and Kebangsaan (Malaisie). This therapy is based on the encapsulation of a catalyst (palladium) into microspheres, to synthesize artificial materials or activate drugs into human cells, thus avoiding any toxicity.

Researchers of the University of Granada and Edimbourgh have developed a new therapy for cancer based on nanotechnology that might improve significantly chemotherapy, as it has not caused side effects.

This therapy is based on the encapsulation of a catalyst (palladium) into microspheres, to synthesize artificial materials or activate drugs within human cells, thus avoiding any toxicity. This system captures palladium within its microstructure. Continue reading
