Falling through the gaps: Do nanoparticles enable cancer cells to escape through leaky vessels?

Reading time: 3 minutes Manisit Das Previously at Oncobites, we discussed how small particles such as nanoparticles could be used for delivering drugs against cancer. The nanoparticles can carry the drugs to the tumor taking advantage of the leakiness of blood vessels running through the tumor. The leaky vessels allow the drug-carrying nanoparticles to enter …
