Nano-sized cells of body may help in fighting cancer: Study

[USA], Sept 14 (ANI): The nano-sized cells that transfer genetic material to other cells in our body may turn into mini treatment transporters to kill cancer cells, suggests a study from Michigan State University and Stanford University. But once they metabolise in the body, they’re immediately activated and can get to work on fighting everything from cancer to headaches. In this case, researchers used extracellular vesicles, or EVs, to deliver the enzyme-producing genes that could activate a prodrug combination therapy of ganciclovir and CB1954 in breast cancer cells. They found that the minicircle DNA was 14 times more effective at delivery and even more successful at killing the cancerous tumour. “Yet the mini circle DNA-based therapy killed more than half of the breast cancer cells in the mice.
