Yet More Progress on Cancer. Using Nanoparticles!

Science Daily: By designing a "nanoparticle" drug delivery system, the UC San Diego team, led by Moores UCSD Cancer Center Director of Translational Research David Cheresh, Ph.D., has identified a way to target chemotherapy to achieve a profound impact on metastasis in pancreatic and kidney cancer in mice.

Based on the most recent mortality rates put forth by the US government, we appear to be making great progress in the fight against heart disease and cancer. Announcements like that quoted above appear almost daily now, suggesting that the progress is only accelerating.
