A potential treatment method for drug-resistant cancer uses gold nanoparticles to convert laser energy into “plasmonic nanobubbles,” which allow chemotherapy drugs to enter single cells. Delivering chemotherapy with nanobubbles is 30 times more effective than traditional drug treatment with less than one-tenth the clinical dose, a study out of Rice University has found. “We are delivering cancer drugs or other genetic cargo at the single-cell level,” said Dmitri Lapotko, a Rice University biologist and physicist whose plasmonic nanobubble technique is the subject...Read full article
