Research Conducted at Sao Paulo State University Has Provided New Information about Drug Delivery Systems (Nanotechnology-based drug delivery systems for treatment of oral cancer: a review)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Biotech Week -- Investigators publish new report on Drugs and Therapies. According to news reporting out of Sao Paulo, Brazil, by NewsRx editors, research stated, "Oral cancer (oral cavity and oropharynx) is a common and aggressive cancer that invades local tissue, can cause metastasis, and has a high mortality rate. Conventional treatment strategies, such as surgery and chemoradiotherapy, have improved over the past few decades; however, they remain far from optimal."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Sao Paulo State University, "Currently, cancer research is focused on improving cancer diagnosis and treatment methods (oral cavity and oropharynx) nanotechnology, which involves the design, characterization, production, and application of nanoscale drug delivery systems. In medicine, nanotechnologies, such as polymeric nanoparticles, solid lipid nanoparticles, nanostructured lipid carriers, gold nanoparticles, hydrogels, cyclodextrin complexes, and liquid crystals, are promising tools for diagnostic probes and therapeutic devices."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The objective of this study is to present a systematic review of nanotechnology-based drug delivery systems for oral cancers."
