Researchers at Inha University Discuss Findings in Cancer Therapy

June 18, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Biotech Week -- Investigators publish new report on Oncology. According to news reporting from Incheon, South Korea, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Targeted delivery systems of nanobiomaterials are necessary to be developed for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Nanobiomaterials can be engineered to recognize cancer-specific receptors at the cellular levels and to deliver anticancer drugs into the diseased sites."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from Inha University, "In particular, nanobiomaterial-based nanocarriers, so-called nanoplatforms, are the design of the targeted delivery systems such as liposomes, polymeric nanoparticles/micelles, nanoconjugates, norganic materials, carbon-based nanobiomaterials, and bioinspired phage system, which are based on the nanosize of 1-100 nm in diameter. In this review, the design and the application of these nanoplatforms are discussed at the cellular levels as well as in the clinics."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "We believe that this review can offer recent advances in the targeted delivery systems of nanobiomaterials regarding in vitro and in vivo applications and the translation of nanobiomaterials to nanomedicine in anticancer therapy."
