The treatments used to treat cancer patients eliminate the tumors, but they frequently have unfavorable side effects on the patients as well. However, a recent study examined how gold nanoparticles can administer cancer drugs with not only incredible accuracy but could also significantly reduce the likelihood of harmful side-effects that are typically found with cancer drug treatments. The study was published in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces.An illustration of the study’s gold nanoparticle drug delivery technology. Stevens Institute of Technology is credited.”Gold is very stable, so it’s the perfect material for drug delivery,” said Dr. Hongjun Wang, a professor of biomedical engineering at the Stevens Institute of Technology and a co-author on the paper.
