What is nanotechnology drug delivery?
Nanotechnology in Drug Delivery. Perhaps the most publicized use of nanotechnology in drug delivery under development is the use of nanoparticles to deliver drugs to cancer cells. Particles are engineered so that they are attracted to diseased cells, which allows direct treatment of those cells.
What do you mean by targeted therapy?
Targeted therapy is a cancer treatment that uses drugs. But it is different from traditional chemotherapy. Targeted therapy works by targeting specific genes or proteins to help stop cancer from growing and spreading.
