New nanoparticle delivers, tracks cancer drugs

Chemical engineers from the University of New South Wales have synthesised a new iron oxide nanoparticle that delivers cancer drugs to cells.

Using a technique known as “fluorescence lifetime imaging”, the researchers were able to monitor drug release time.

Iron oxide nanoparticles capable of tracking drug delivery provide the very real possibility of adapting treatments for individual patients.
