'Connectosomes' create gateway for improved chemo delivery, fewer side effects

Engineering researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have developed a new method that delivers chemotherapy directly and efficiently to individual cells. The approach, described in the Sept. 8 edition of the Journal of the American Chemical Society, could provide a faster means of targeting and killing cancer cells with significantly lower doses of chemo than conventional drug delivery methods, which could decrease side effects for patients.
