Engineered Particle Enters, Alters Tumor Cells

A tiny particle engineered at Cedars-Sinai was able to infiltrate tumor cells and deliver cell-altering genetic code in laboratory mice, according to a recent study. The findings point to a potential way for delivering therapy to treatment-resistant cancerous tumors to prevent their growth and spread.
