Optically modulated cancer therapeutic delivery: past, present and future

0

Chemotherapeutic regimens are often restricted by dose-limiting toxicities that arise from drug exposure to off-site tissues. Nanoparticle drug carriers that specifically deliver therapeutics to the site of malignant tissue are being actively researched today. One strategy is to utilize materials that are light-responsive, such that the carrier can be triggered to release its drug payload at the distinct time and location of light exposure.
