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.Image of the gold nanoparticle drug delivery system examined for this study. Stevens Institute of Technology is credited.“Gold is very stable, so it’s the perfect material for drug delivery,” said Dr. Hongjun Wang, who is a professor of biomedical engineering at the Stevens Institute of Technology, and a co-author on the study.
