New research shows that changing the shape of chemotherapy drug nanoparticles to make them rod-shaped rather than spherical can dramatically enhance their effectiveness at targeting and treating breast cancer.
For scientists to improve cancer treatments with targeted therapeutic drugs, they need to be able to see proteins prevalent in the cancer cells.
