Magnetic nanoparticles can help target cancer treatment

A study at New York University Abu Dhabi is exploring the use of magnetic nanoparticles to deliver drugs directly to cancer cells, reducing side effects. "When the tumor is formed, to increase the concentration for the nanoparticles, a magnet has to be placed near the tumor, and then the magnetic nanoparticles can be guided to the site," explained researcher Ali Trabolsi, assistant professor of chemistry at NYUAD.
